Hunter Simper

I am currently a postdoc at the University of Utah. Previously I was at Purdue University where I received my Ph.D. from Purdue University under the guidance Uli Walther.


Research Interests: Broadly speaking, I work in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. 

In particular, some topics I like thinking about include:

-Determinantal varieties; more generally ideals of minors and ideals coming from a GL action,

-Local cohomology; recently, I've been very interested in homological properties of thickenings,

-Stanley-Reisner rings and simplicial complexes,

-Bernstein-Sato polynomials and related D-modules.
