Research Interests

My research focuses on the intersection of mathematical biology and applied algebra.
In particular, I think about how tools from algebraic geometry, commutative algebra,
and combinatorics can be applied to biological questions. I also work on either side of
this intersection: I study problems related to algebraic matroids and coordinate projections in other realms,
and I have computational biology projects in translation dynamics and gene regulatory networks.

  • Algebra keywords : algebraic matroids, structured polynomial systems, arrangements of convex sets.
  • Biology keywords : population genetics, single-cell transcriptomics, neural codes.
