Current Research Interests:

My research interests lie in commutative algebra, algebraic geometry and combinatorics with a focus on applications.

  • Toric degenerations of varieties using tools from representation theory, tropical geometry and cluster algebra

  • Algebraic and combinatorial divisor theory for graphs and matroids

  • Algebraic statistics with a focus on Graphical models and maximal likelihood degree of varieties

  • Sandpile models (avalanche dynamics)

  • Hyperplane arrangements and Orlik-Terao ideals

  • Gröbner bases and its applications

  • Deformation, minimal free resolutions, and cellular resolution of ideals

  • Determinantal ideals and their applications in conditional independence statements

  • System reliability theory and percolation theory

  • Combinatorial persistent homology and computational topology
