POT 707


I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the mathematics department at UK, where my mentor is Dave Jensen.

I received my PhD in 2017 from the University of Oregon, under the supervision of Nick Proudfoot. Before coming to UK, I spent a year at Yale as a Gibbs Assistant Professor.


I am interested in combinatorial aspects of algebraic geometry. Particular areas of interest include hyperplane arrangements, toric and hypertoric varieties, and tropical and non-archimedean geometry. Recently, I have been thinking about matroids and combinatorial Hodge theory. Find a list of my papers and preprints here.

I am a member of the algebra group at UK, and for the 2019-2020 academic year I am organizing the Algebra Seminar.

In Spring 2020, I am running an undergraduate research project through the UK Math Lab.


In Spring 2020 I am teaching Math 362: Elementary Modern Algebra II and Math 113: Calculus I.
