One of my research interests is in commutative algebra, in particular in the use of homological tools to study commutative rings. I am also interested in non-commutative algebra, in particular in the actions of Hopf algebras on rings.

Macaulay2 is a software system devoted to supporting research in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Here is a list of packages I co-wrote:

Stable cohomology of local rings and Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of graded modules.

CHAMP is a weekly online seminar series; its main goal is to give graduate students and other early career researchers on the job market a platform to give a 50 minutes talk about their research. This is the seminar that I gave at CHAMP, based on my paper The homotopy Lie algebra of a Tor-independent tensor product.

Here is a counterexample answering the question that Eloisa asked at the end of the talk: let k be a field, let R=k[[x,y]] be a power series ring and let I_{1}=(x^{2},xy),I_{2}=(y^{2}) be ideals of R. Set S_{1}=R/I_{1}, S_{2}=R/I_{2} and S=R/(I_{1}+I_{2}). Then $\pi$(S) is a free Lie algebra since the square of the maximal ideal of $S$ is zero. While
$\pi$(S_{1})$\times$_{$\pi$(R)}$\pi$(S_{2}) is not free because an element of degree 2 of $\pi$(S_{1}) commutes with an element of degree 2 of $\pi$(S_{2}); this follows from the fact that R is regular and so $\pi$(R) is concentrated in degree 1.
