Karthik Ganapathy

I am a sixth year PhD candidate in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. My research interests lie in commutative algebra, representation theory and algebraic geometry.

In 2018, I graduated from the Chennai Mathematical Institute with a B.Sc (Hons.) in Mathematics and Computer Science. I grew up in the city of Kochi, Kerala.
