I am a fourth year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Virginia. My advisor is Weiqiang Wang . My research interests are in representation theory and categorification. Specifically, I am studying the traces (or cocenters) and representations of Hecke-Clifford algebras in classical types (which are closely linked to the spin representation theory of classical Weyl groups) and of the twisted Heisenberg category. Here is my CV. | |
