I am an assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside.
I completed my Ph.D. in mathematics in May 2010 at UT Austin studying with David Ben-Zvi.
Spring 2016, Fields and Galois theory Math 201C.
I work with geometric methods in representation theory. More specifically, I am studying `modular' perverse sheaves - perverse sheaves on complex algebraic varieties with coefficients in a field of positive characteristic - and connections with the modular representation theory of groups and algebras from Lie theory.
Perverse sheaves and modular representation theory,
Séminaires et Congrès 24-II (2012), 313-350.
(joint with D. Juteau and G. Williamson)
Winter 2016, Linear Algebra II Math 132.
Spring 2015, Modern Algebra Math 172.
Winter 2015, Linear Algebra II Math 132.
I have also taught courses on toric varieties (Spring 2013) and perverse sheaves (Fall 2011).
Some past activities:
I helped organize a workshop on Lie theory and representation theory here at UCR in February 2015.
In August 2010, Joel Kamnitzer and I organized a workshop on Ngo's proof of the Fundamental Lemma.
In Fall 2008 and Spring 2009, I co-organized a reading seminar on papers in algebra and geometry.
In Fall 2007, I organized a learning seminar on etale cohomology and the Weil conjectures.
Alex Kahle and I organized a graduate student workshop on knot theory and representations in January 2007.
