Teaching

  I will be teaching Calculus and Analytic Geometry 2 in the fall semester. See our Canvas page for the course informations.

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
