My research interests are in the area of quantum Schubert calculus. The field finds its roots in the 19th Century when Hermann Schubert asked questions that require counting the number of times geometric phenomena occur. For example, how many lines intersect four given lines in three dimensional space? Schubert Calculus' influence on modern mathematics is demonstrated by being the topic of one of David Hilbert's famous 23 problems. "Quantum" Schubert calculus means we are counting degree d rational curves-in contrast to lines or points-that satisfy certain incidents conditions.
