I study algebraic curves using combinatorial methods, particularly through young tableaux and generalizations of them. I am particularly interested in Brill-Noether theory, which studies the variety of ways that a chosen curve is realized in projective space. My methods revolve around degeneration to singular curves, especially chains of elliptic curves. I also study analogous questions in the setting of tropical geometry, and the relation between these persepctives via non-Archimedean analytic geometry. Some of my papers are listed below.
