Reuven Hodges

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Kansas.

My research focuses on representation theory, algebraic groups, and algebraic combinatorics. I investigate flag varieties and their Schubert varieties via representation theoretic and combinatorial tools. I also work with straightening relations and study their application to multiplicities of irreducible representations in plethysms and geometric complexity theory.

I co-organized a Schubert Summer School at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on June 12-22, 2023. See the website for details.

Previous employment:

I was a S.E.W. Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California San Diego from Fall 2021 until Fall 2023. I worked with Steven Sam.

I was a J.L. Doob Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working with Alexander Yong from Fall 2019 until Fall 2021.

I was a Co-organizer of the Algebra-Geometry-Combinatorics Seminar at UIUC, along with Alexander Yong and Colleen Robichaux.

I was a Postdoctoral researcher with the Algorithms and Complexity group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrucken, Germany from Fall 2018 until Fall 2019.

I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Northeastern University in May 2017. My advisor was Venkatramani Lakshmibai.
