Sabbatical Activities (2001415) 
I was on sabbatical from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. You can see what I did below.
Queen's Algebraic Geometry Seminar (Kingston, ON)
 I gave a talk at Queen's University in the Algebraic Geomtry Seminar. My talk was held on October 6, 2014.
AMS Special Session (Halifax, NS)
 I attended the
Special Session on Commutative Algebra and Its Interactions with Algebraic Geometry. I gave a talk on circulant edge ideals. The conference was
from Oct. 1819, 2014.
Here's a picture of me at Dalhousie:
While at Dalhousie, Tai Ha and I recreated a picutre of us from 15 years ago.
 On November 7, I gave a talk in Kevin Vander Meulen's undergraduate graph theory course.
 With Tony Geramita, I organized a special session on commutative algebra at the Canadian Mathematical Socieity Winter Meeting. You can see more about this session on my web page. This conference will be held from Dec. 58, 2014.
 I attend the 12th iteration of the conference Combinatorial algebra meets algebraic combinatorics. This year's meeting was held at Queen's University.

I attended the
MiniWorkshop: Ideals of Linear Subspaces, Their Symbolic Powers and Waring Problems
in February 2015 at MFO in Germany. Here's a group shot of all the
participants.

I attended a PhD defense as an external committee member at the
math department
at the University of Genoa. I was in Genoa during the
last week of February. Here I am in front of the math building.
