Research

Interests: My primary interests are geometric combinatorics and commutative algebra. Specifically, I enjoy connections between the topological and combinatorial properties of simplicial complexes and some of their associated algebraic structures and invariants.

Papers:

  1. A generalized lower bound theorem for balanced manifolds (with Martina Juhnke-Kubitzke, Satoshi Murai, and Isabella Novik), Mathematische Zeitschrift, to appear [PDF]
  2. Almost Buchsbaumness of some rings arising from complexes with isolated singularities, Journal of Commutative Algebra, to appear [PDF]
  3. Stanley-Reisner rings of Buchsbaum complexes with a free action by an abelian group, Algebraic Combinatorics, to appear [PDF]
  4. Ext and local cohomology modules of face rings of simplicial posets, Journal of Algebra, to appear [PDF]
Talks:
  1. Lower bound theorems for balanced manifolds, 2017 CMS Winter Meeting  [slides]
  2. Lower bound theorems for balanced manifolds, 2018 AMS Spring Central Sectional Meeting
  3. Almost Buchsbaumness of some rings arising from complexes with isolated singularities, 2018 AMS Spring Western Sectional Meeting [slides]
