Robin Walters

NSF Postdoctoral Fellow, Zelevinsky Research Instructor at Northeastern University

My research interests are in algebraic geometry and representation theory. In particular, I study the Bernstein-Sato b-function, a singularity invariant related to holonomic D-modules. I also study connections to other invariants such as zeta functions and local monodromy.

My CV can be found here.

I was a student of Victor Ginzburg at the University of Chicago until I graduated in 2015.
