Jessica Striker's Homepage
I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at North Dakota State University. My research is in combinatorics at the intersection of algebra, geometry, dynamics, and statistical physics. I am especially
interested in alternating
sign matrices, plane partitions, and other combinatorial objects which relate to integrable (or exactly solvable) models of statistical physics. I am also interested in dynamical algebraic combinatorics, which studies actions on combinatorial objects with especially nice properties, such as cyclic sieving, homomesy, and resonance. My favorite actions include rowmotion on order ideals, promotion on tableaux, and their generalizations.
I earned my Ph.D. in 2008 from the University
of Minnesota under the direction of Dennis Stanton. My Ph.D. students are Sara Solhjem and Corey Vorland.
