Jornal reference: Advances in Mathematics 348 (2019) 541-582
arXiv:1604.08641, Convex Polytopes for the Central Degeneration of the Affine Grassmannian.

In the long term, I am also interested in studying the interplay between representation theory and other scientific subjects, especially quantum information, quantum field theory, and data analysis.


From Aug 2012 to May 2017, I taught various undergraduate mathematics classes at University of California Berkeley.
