In the fall of 2016 I am teaching Toric Varieties and Calculus with Theory. My office hours are Monday 1:00 - 1:50 and Thursday 2:00 - 3:30.

Toric varieties (seven week course, fall 2010)

Geometric representation theory and categorification (three lecture minicourse, summer 2011)

Symplectic geometry (ten week course, fall 2013).

2010: Operator Algebras and Conformal Field Theory (with André Henriques)

2011: Cluster Algebras and Lusztig's Semicanonical Basis (with David Speyer)

2012: Categorical Representation Theory (with David Ben-Zvi)

2013: Quantum/Affine Schubert Calculus (with Allen Knutson)

2014: Kazhdan-Lusztig Theory and Soergel Bimodules (with Ben Elias)

2015: Positivity in Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry (with June Huh)

2016: Knot homologies, Hilbert schemes, and Cherednik algebras (with Jacob Rasmussen)

* Workshop on Algebra and Representation Theory Held on Oregonian Grounds

I am interested in symplectic algebraic varieties, which come up a lot in representation theory (e.g. quiver varieties, Hilbert schemes on ALE spaces, the Springer resolution, slices in the affine Grassmannian). The spaces with which I work the most are hypertoric varieties, which interact with combinatorial objects such as matroids, zonotopes, and hyperplane arrangements.

Recently I have been very interested in Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials of matroids. Though these polynomials have a purely combinatorial definition, they have strong connections to algebraic geometry (compactifications of arrangement complements) and combinatorial representation theory (FI- and FS-modules).

Here is a list of my preprints.
