Current Research Interests
Broadly speaking, I am interested in studying algebraic properties of geometric objects. Recently, these geometric objects have been arrangements of points in the projective plane and arrangements of lines in three-dimensional projective space. I intend to continue working in this direction in the near future, and would welcome the opportunity to work with motivated students!
