Research interests

I am a commutative algebraist, and my research is motivated by connections with birational algebraic geometry, the theory of differential operators, classical singularity theory, and convex geometry. I am especially interested in applications of the Frobenius endomorphism and related prime characteristic methods, local cohomology, and convexity to the study of algebraic varieties.

Software development

I am an active member of Macaulay2 (M2) community. M2 is a software system devoted to supporting research in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, and I have co-authored the following packages, which focus on explicit computation in prime characteristic, and include implementations of some of the algorithms developed in my research, but also a lot more.


My research is partially supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the grant DMS-1902321.
