Jacob Matherne is interested in the interplay among geometry, representation theory, and combinatorics. This has included, for certain quiver representations, a combinatorial description of exceptional sequences and of the Fourier-Sato transform (for perverse sheaves). At IAS, he will investigate the Kazhdan-Lusztig theory of matroids via Hodge theory.
