I am primarily interested in algebraic geometry and algebraic combinatorics.
For example, here are
crystals. I would love to
talk to you about: GL_n representation theory and Schubert calculus,
Grassmannians, Hilbert schemes and related moduli problems (such as
moduli of curves), homological
algebra, and other "concrete" algebraic geometry. I also have a soft
spot for (geometrically-motivated) commutative
In 2009, I worked in the commutative algebra group at SMALL with Susan Loepp, studying completions of certain (strange) local rings. Basically, we constructed a class of weird singularities, which we studied analytically-locally.

Personal:I graduated from Williams College with a BA in mathematics, and spent Fall 2009 in Hungary at the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program, which I highly recommend. If you're a Williams student thinking about applying to math grad schools, feel free to get in touch! I can't guarantee to be helpful, but I can guarantee to be more helpful than either of these guys.
I am Canadian. More specifically, I am from Montreal, Quebec. I love bagels and occasionally poutine, et je parle français (mais je suis anglophone / English is my mother tongue).

I wrote up my solutions to the May 2012 Analysis QR Exam, since there are currently no solutions to any analysis quals... that made it hard to study! Download here.
