# Algebra and algebraic geometry

A. Clay studies geometric group theory and group actions on ordered sets. J. Chipalkatti's interests are in algebraic geometry, as well as classical invariant theory. S. Cooper's expertise is commutative algebra. S. Kirkland works in matrix theory and graph theory, with particular interest in the theory and applications of nonnegative matrices, combinatorial matrix theory, and spectral graph theory. T. Kucera studies injective modules and related concepts in module theory and ring theory. S. Sankaran works in arithmetic geometry, modular forms and number theory. Yang Zhang's interests are algebra, computer algebra and applications.
