Some previous courses: Math 132 (Calculus I), Math 299 (Transition to Formal Mathematics), Math 309 (Advanced Linear Algebra), Math 310 (Abstract Algebra), Math 418H−419H (Honors Abstract Algebra), Math 481 (Discrete Math I), Math 482 (Discrete Math II), Math 880 (Graduate Combinatorics I); also, my daily-quiz system for upper undergrad courses.
My main field is representation theory, using tools from algebraic combinatorics and algebraic geometry. I study semi-simple complex Lie groups and the associated loop groups, representations, and homogeneous spaces (Grassmannians, flag varieties, affine Grassmannians). I am interested in Young tableaux and their generalizations, such as Littelmann paths and Kashiwara crystals. I have also done work on Schubert calculus and (affine) Schubert polynomials.
See my publications (also on the arXiv), research statement, and abstract.
I was born in Budapest, Hungary, and immigrated with my family at age 4. I speak Hungarian and spent an undergrad year abroad in Budapest Semesters in Mathematics. My family.
