### About

My primary research concerns combinatorial models governing the geometry of particularly nice algebraic varieties. The theory of Young tableaux has led to an important understanding of the cohomology rings of Grassmannians and to significant further developments in algebraic geometry, representation theory and combinatorics. I'm often working to elucidate the richer world of K-theory, by both developing new combinatorial models and studying their applications.
