Research interests and background

My research focuses on problems in representation theory and algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in the topology, geometry, and combinatorics of spaces naturally arising from representation theory. Recently I have been thinking about Bridgeland stability conditions on triangulated categories, and associated braid group actions. Specific topics of interest include Bridgeland stability conditions, perverse sheaves, quiver varieties, equivariant cohomology, and Bernstein–Sato polynomials.

My papers and preprints are on my research page. A CV is available here (pdf).


I am not teaching in Semester 1 of 2024. Older teaching is listed on my teaching page.

Current and upcoming activities

I am was at one point rewriting the MSI LaTeX templates for exams using org-babel. It is very much a work in progress, but you can view the source code (at your own risk) in the Github repository.
