## Overview

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**.
