Vega receives NSF grant to study combinatorics and algebraic geometry

Laura Escobar Vega, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics in Arts & Sciences, received a $172,750 grant from the National Science Foundation to study interactions between Newton-Okounkov bodies, cluster algebras, and orbit closures. The project aims to understand various aspects of the interplay between combinatorics and algebraic geometry for Newton-Okounkov bodies, symmetric orbit closures and subword complexes.
