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.
Winter 2017, Topology II, Math 205B.
Winter 2017, Algebraic Geometry I, Math 243A.
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.
(joint with D. Juteau and G. Williamson) Perverse sheaves and modular representation theory.

Some past activities:
In March 2016, Pramod Achar and I organized an workshop on Sheaves and Modular Representations of Reductive Groups at the American Institute of Mathematics.
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.
Fall 2016, First-Year Calculus Math 9A.
Spring 2016, Fields and Galois theory Math 201C.
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).
