I am currently an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College (on leave from Williams College). My research began in commutative and homological algebra but my interests are expanding into representation theory.
I received my B.A.s from Williams College in Political Science and Mathematics. I received an M.S. from the University of Nebraska and my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Utah under the supervision of Dr. Srikanth Iyengar. I also took part in the Gaius Charles Bolin Fellow program at Williams College.
My research program currently seeks to develop and use the theory of trace ideals to solve problems in homological algebra. This leads me to think often about centers of endomorphism rings, rigidity and generators in module categories. Because trace ideals are easy to define, understand and calculate, I’ve found there is potential here both for undergraduate projects and to effectively approach longstanding conjectures in commutative algebra and homological algebra.
