Matthew Tai


I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.

I received my PhD. from the University of Pennsylvania in spring 2014, and my BA in mathematics from Harvard in spring 2009.

My research interests are in representation theory and algebraic Lie theory, currently looking at combinatorial structures related to the representations of simple Lie groups. I am also interested in differential geometry and mathematical physics.

More details are available on my page on research.

I am currently a teaching assistant for
Math 104: Calculus I (SAIL), in-class assistant
Math 260: Honors Calculus, 2 sections
Math 603: Graduate Abstract Algebra,grader

In the past I have also been TA for classes in algebra, topology, and differential geometry at UPenn, and an undergraduate course assistant in calculus, real analysis and dynamical systems at Harvard University.

More details are available in my page on teaching.

My hobbies include drumming, making electronic music and playing with the Rubik's cube and its variants. More details in the page on "Fun Stuff".
