Ph. D., Mathematics, Dalhousie University


Dr. Alilooee’s field of research is commutative algebra. He is especially interested in problems in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry which can be translated into the language of combinatorics. One of the most useful techniques applied to connect commutative algebra to combinatorics is assigning a squarefree monomial ideal to a graph or a simplicial complex to make a dictionary between their algebraic and combinatorial properties. A squarefree monomial is a product of distinct variables, in a polynomial ring. A squarefree monomial ideal is an ideal generated by squarefree monomials. The central theme of his research is the study of squarefree monomial ideals from a combinatorial perspective.
