Seminar Information


Jason Boynton 
Rank: Associate Professor
Ph.D.: Florida Atlantic University, 2006
Office: Minard 408E20
Phone: 701.231.8728

Boynton studies commutative rings that do not necessarily enjoy the Noetherian property. In particular, he investigates Prüfer and coherent-like conditions in integer-valued polynomials and more general pullback constructions. Boynton also studies various factorization properties in integral domains.

Cătălin Ciupercă 
Rank: Associate Professor
Ph.D.: University of Kansas, 2001
Commutative Algebra
Office: Minard 408E26
Phone: 701.231.8192

Ciuperca's interests lie in the field of commutative algebra. The topics of his research are multiplicity theory, asymptotic properties of ideals, Rees algebras, Hilbert functions and integral closure of ideals.  

Torin Greenwood
Rank: Assistant Professor
Ph.D.: University of Pennsylvania, 2015
Office: Minard 406G
Phone: 701.231.6953

Greenwood’s research involves combinatorics, probability, and mathematical biology.  Ongoing projects analyze RNA folding algorithms by using tools from discrete mathematics and analytic combinatorics. He is also interested in models of percolation from mathematical physics.

Jessica Striker 
Rank: Associate Professor
Ph.D.: University of Minnesota, 2008 
Office: Minard 406H
Phone: 701.231.6958

Striker studies enumerative, geometric, and dynamical algebraic combinatorics and is especially interested in connections to statistical physics. Combinatorial objects she investigates include: plane partitions, alternating sign matrices, posets, polytopes, and tableaux.
