Gibbs Assistant Professor

LOM 222-B


I am a Gibbs Assistant Professor in the mathematics department at Yale University, where my mentor is Sam Payne. In Fall 2018, I will begin a 3 year position as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Kentucky, where I will work with Dave Jensen.

I received my PhD in 2017 from the University of Oregon, under the supervision of Nick Proudfoot.


I like to work with combinatorial objects which show up in algebraic geometry. I am specifically interested in matroids, hypertoric varieties, and tropical and non-archimedean geoemetry. Find a list of my papers and preprints here.

Together with Asher Auel, Yuchen Liu, Kalina Mincheva, and Sam Payne, I am a co-organizer of the Yale algebraic and tropical geometry seminar.


In Spring 2018 I am teaching Math 657: Matroid Theory.
