Hi, I’m John Cobb
I’m a fourth year PhD student in the mathematics department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison advised by both Daniel Erman and Michael Kemeny. From 2019 to 2022, I was supported by a DoD NDSEG Fellowship. Details are in my CV.
My research interests are within algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Currently, I am studying things like geometric/homological perspectives on syzygies and lifting classical results to the toric setting.

Featured Courses and Organization
Géométrie Algébrique en Liberté, also known as GAeL, is an annual workshop organized by and for young algebraic geometers.
The DRP is a math mentoring program that pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors, for a semester-long independent study project.
The purpose of this seminar is to learn algebraic geometry and commutative algebra by giving and listening to talks in a informal setting.
- A beer featuring art about algebraic geometry research that I helped design is now being sold in Madison. Check it out.
- I began my first year in the Mathematics PhD program at UW Madison.
- The College Today published an article on the Scott Ward Award.
- I won a DoD NDSEG Fellowship.
- The College Today published an article on the Quaternionic Soliton project.
- I won a Goldwater Scholarship.
