Some previous courses: Math 132 (Calculus I Notes), Math 133 (Calculus II Notes), Math 254H (Honors Multivariable Calculus), Math 299 (Transition to Formal Mathematics), Math 309 (Advanced Linear Algebra), Math 310 (Abstract Algebra), Math 419H (Honors Abstract Algebra, also 2006), Math 481 (Discrete Math I), Math 482 (Discrete Math II), Math 880 (Graduate Combinatorics I), Math 881 (Graduate Graph Theory); 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.
