Gregg Musiker

Welcome to my homepage. I am an Assistant Professor at University of Minnesota.

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of California at San Diego, where I studied Combinatorics and topics in Arithmetic Geometry under the guidance of Adriano Garsia. Before coming to Minnesota, I was an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow and Instructor in Applied Mathematics at MIT working with Richard Stanley, and a research member at MSRI participating in their Fall 2009 program in Tropical Geometry.
