I am a fifth year PhD student in mathematics working under Alexander Yong in algebraic combinatorics.

Research Interests

Algebraic combinatorics is both the use of algebraic methods to solve combinatorial problems and the the use of combinatorial methods and ideas to study algebraic objects. It provides deep and beautiful mathematics linking many a priori unrelated areas of mathematics such as representation theory, algebraic geometry, statistical mechanics, algorithms, and many more. My particular interests are in Schubert calculus and symmetric functions.
