Hi, I’m John Cobb
I’m a third year PhD student in the mathematics department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison advised by both Daniel Erman and Michael Kemeny. I am supported by a DoD NDSEG Fellowship and am a current WISCIENCE Public Service Fellow. Details are in my CV.
My research interests are within algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Currently, I am studying things like geometric perspectives of syzygies and moduli spaces of curves.
