About Me

My general research areas are Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry (more 13 than 14). My primary research area is the study of ideals generated by the principal minors of a generic matrix over an algebraically closed field. The motivation comes from the more well-studied determinantal and Pfaffian ideals that first arose within Invariant Theory.

More broadly, I'm interested in finding new classes of Gorenstein rings, because of their connection to generalized Cayley-Bacharach theorems. I earned my Ph.D. in 2014 from the University of Michigan under Mel Hochster. My undergraduate degree is from Kansas State University.
