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.
This year I am also UArk's local supervisor for the William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition.
