About me

I am currently an associate professor at North Carolina State University. Previously I was a T. H. Hildebrandt Research Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and an NSF postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I completed my Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the guidance of Alexander Postnikov in 2010. (CV)

My research interests lie in algebraic combinatorics, especially its relationship to algebraic geometry, combinatorial geometry, and representation theory. I am currently funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, DMS-1700302. During the 2020-2021 academic year, I am on leave at the Institute for Advanced Study.
