I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McMaster University. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Saskatchewan, a Postdoc at the University of Michigan, and a Research Member in the Commutative Algebra program at MSRI. I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University, under the supervision of Allen Knutson. TeachingI am teaching MATH 2R03 (Theory of Linear Algebra) and MATH 702 (Algebra II) in Winter 2023. All course information will be posted to Avenue to Learn. ResearchI work at the intersection of algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and commutative algebra. I am particularly interested in algebrogeometric and combinatorial properties of algebraic varieties which have large groups of symmetries (eg. Schubert varieties, quiver loci). I use computationalalgebraic, combinatorial, and positive characteristic techniques (eg. Frobenius splitting) in my work.
I am partially supported by an NSERC Discovery Grant.
