Research Interests

My main research to date has been on liaison theory, a specialty within the broader area of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. I began by studying the case of codimension two subschemes, and the high point of that early part of my work is probably the paper listed first below. More recently, I have been very much interested in questions in higher codimension, and in the more elusive case of Gorenstein liaison. The high point of this part of my work is the monograph listed second below. I also completed a book about liaison theory and so-called deficiency modules, listed third below. The fourth work listed below proved an important special case of a still-open question in liaison theory.

While I am still quite interested in liaison theory, over the last decade my research has shifted somewhat. An important theme has been the study of Hilbert functions of various algebras, as well as their graded Betti numbers. In particular, I have studied the cases of level (possibly monomial) algebras, algebras defined by ideals of generic forms, and Gorenstein algebras. See for instance the fifth and sixth references below. A related topic is the so-called Weak Lefschetz Property for artinian algebras. Two of my papers on this topic are listed seventh and eighth below.

My personal page contains a link to my complete list of publications.
