I am a postdoc at the University of Oregon. Prior to that I was at Columbia University, where I did my PhD under the supervision of Mikhail Khovanov.

This quarter (Winter 2014) I am teaching a section each of Math 252 (Calculus II) and Math 341 (Elementary Linear Algebra I). I will not be teaching the following quarter, Spring 2014.

My research is on categorification, including: KLR algebras, Hecke algebras, super- and odd-categorification, link homology, and symmetric functions. You can find my papers on the arXiv.

I have written some code in python which may be of interest to people who study symmetric functions, Schur and Grothendieck polynomials, odd analogues of these, Manin-Schechtman graphs, certain Hecke algebras in type A, and polynomials in q-commuting or noncommutative variables. See my github.
