I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan. Previously, I was a post-doc at the University of Michigan, a Research Member in the Commutative Algebra program at MSRI, and a graduate student at Cornell University. My Ph.D. advisor was Allen Knutson.


Fall 2019: Math 266 (Linear Algebra I) and Math 460/872 (Intro. to Commutative and Homological Algebra). All course information can be found on Blackboard.

Office Hours: Tuesdays 1:30-2:30 and Fridays 11-12

Math Club: Join us for a meeting! The schedule is here.

Past teaching


I work at the intersection of algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and commutative algebra. The overarching goal of my research program is to gain insight into combinatorial and commutative-algebraic properties of algebraic varieties with importance in representation theory. I use computational-algebraic, combinatorial, and positive characteristic techniques (eg. Frobenius splitting) in my work.

I am partially supported by an NSERC Discovery Grant.

My papers.

The next Canadian Western Algebraic Geometry Symposium (CaWAGS) will take place March 7-8, 2020 at the University of Saskatchewan.
