Reuven Hodges

I am currently a S.E.W. Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California San Diego. I am working with Steven Sam.

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

Before that, I was a Postdoctoral researcher with the Algorithms and Complexity group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrucken, Germany.

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

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.
