Research Interests


I am currently an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa and a member of the Algebra and Lie Theory Groups as well as the Network of Ontario Lie Theorists. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia and my Ph.D. at Yale University under the supervision of Igor Frenkel. (See here for my complete mathematics genealogy.) After graduating, I spent a semester at the Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik in Bonn, Germany before spending two and a half years as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto and the Fields Institute. My current research involves the use of geometric, combinatorial, and categorical methods to study various topics in representation theory.

Open Access Texts

Whenever possible, I try to use open access texts when teaching. With the help of a friend, I've started a website listing open access undergraduate textbooks. If you have suggestions for texts to add to the site, please let me know.

Upcoming Workshops/Conferences

The following is a list of upcoming workshops, conferences or seminars in which I am involved either as an organizer or a participant. For a list of talks I have given in the past, see here. For a list of conferences and workshops I have organized in the past, see here.
