## Teaching

I will be teaching a topic course on Combinatorial Hodge theory in Fall 2022. More details will be available before the semester starts.

Here are the previous courses I have taught at Madison.

## Research

I am interested in the topology of algebraic varieties, and its interaction with combinatorics and algebraic statistics. I am currently interested in the following topics.

The topological aspects of algebraic optimization problems
Fourier-Mukai (or Mellin) transformation and the generic vanishing theorems
Kazhdan-Lusztig theory for matroids
Schubert varieties of hyperplane arrangements and their generalizations
