Brendan Pawlowski


I'm a postdoc in the University of Michigan math department working in algebraic combinatorics. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2014 where my advisor was Sara Billey, and then spent a year at the University of Minnesota. Here's my CV.

Research

My research focuses on problems in combinatorial representation theory (usually in the symmetric group or general linear group), along with connections to symmetric functions and to Schubert calculus in Grassmannians and flag varieties. I'm also interested in the permutation combinatorics that often appears here, like pattern avoidance and the theory of reduced words. For details, see this research statement.
