My research is in Commutative Algebra. More particularly, my interests include invariant theory, positive characteristic techniques, differential operators, local cohomology, generalized multiplicities, symbolic powers, and applications to neuroscience.

\[\mathrm{Hom}_R(\mathrm{Ext}_R^{d-i}(M,\omega_R),E_R(R/\mathfrak{m}))\cong \mathrm{H}^i_{\mathfrak{m}}(M)\] "When obliged to clean birds, collectors will find it an advantage to use salt and water instead of plain water. The salt prevents the solution of the blood-globules and consequent diffusion of the red haemoglobin."
J. Jeffries, Science, 1883
