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 (Fall 2015), I am teaching two sections (8am, noon) of Calculus I and one (9am) of Elementary Linear Algebra I. My office hours are Tuesdays 1-3pm and Fridays 10-11am.

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

I have written some code in python which may of interest to people studying 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.
