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.

I am currently a teaching assistant for Math 114: Calculus II,
Math 170: Ideas in Mathematics,
Math 602: Graduate Abstract Algebra
In the past I have 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.

My hobbies include drumming, making electronic music and playing with the Rubik's cube and its variants.

More information about my research, teaching and hobbies can found in the links above.
