Past teaching


The majority of my research is in combinatorial commutative algebra, an area of mathematics concerned with the creation and use of combinatorial tools to study polynomial ideals, modules, and algebraic varieties. I am particularly interested in algebro-geometric and combinatorial properties of algebraic varieties with importance in representation theory (eg. quiver loci, Schubert varieties, cluster algebras, certain Hilbert schemes). To study these varieties, I use computational and combinatorial techniques, as well as positive characteristic methods (eg. Frobenius splitting).
