Recent & Upcoming Talks

In astronomy, a syzygy is an alignment of celestial bodies. In mathematics, a syzygy is an alignment of a kernel of one homomorphism with the image of another! In this talk I’ll introduce free resolutions, syzygies, and a few applications thereof.

Commutative algebra is ripe with topics for undergraduate research, and I will discuss one such topic: Boij-Soederberg theory. I will focus on specific results from two undergraduate research projects I mentored in this context, including how I developed the projects to dovetail with my own research agenda. I will also (briefly!) describe my experience as a mentor to undergraduates and a few things I wish I’d known ahead of time.
