My research interests include Discrete Mathematics and its conections with other fields.
I received my Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Professor Victor Reiner. My Thesis is 0-Hecke algebra actions on flags, polynomials, and Stanley-Reisner rings.
I use mathematics softwares such as GAP, Magma, and Sage in my research.
- Hecke algebras with independent parameters, AMS Spring Central Sectional Meeting, Fargo, April 2016.
- Arithmetic without parentheses, Undergraduate Research Opportunities: Mathematics Mini-Symposium, UNK, March 2016.
