- My research interests are in geometric representation theory. My current research topic is the combinatorics of Schubert varieties and Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials, I am particularly interested in Lusztig-Dyer's combinatorial invariance conjecture. I am interested in visualizations of difficult mathematical concepts. I use coding to produce visualizations and gain understanding.

- Combinatorial invariance conjecture for A˜2

Joint with Nicolas Libedinsky and David Plaza,*IMRN*International Mathematics Research Notices, rnac105. https://doi.org/10.1093/imrn/rnac105

In this paper we proved in type A˜2 an old conjecture stated independently by G. Lusztig and M. Dyer. This conjecture says that if the intervals [x,y] and [x',y'] are isomorphic as Bruhat posets, then the corresponding Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials P_{x,y}(q) and P_{x',y'}(q) should be equal. - p-Jones-Wenzl idempotents

Joint with Nicolas Libedinsky and Paolo Sentinelli,*Adv. Math.*352 (2019), 246–264. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aim.2019.06.005

In this paper, we find a characteristic p-analog of the classical recursion formula for the Jones-Wenzl idempotents. Here is my illustrative poster about this work which I presented at the New Connections in Representation Theory conference.
