PhD obtained in May 2022

Rutgers University—New Brunswick

Advisor: Siddhartha Sahi

My CV as of May 2022

My thesis was in algebraic combinatorics and representation theory. For a more detailed description, see my academic research statement.

My thesis research applies a result of Ram and Yip to give a combinatorial formula for SSV polynomials, a simultaneous generalization of Macdonald polynomials and metaplectic Whittaker functions discovered by Sahi, Stokman, and Venkateswaran. Here is the resulting paper, published in Advances in Mathematics:
