Associate Professor of Mathematics
Ph.D. Mathematics, University of Minnesota, 2008
B.S. Mathematics, University of Michigan, 2005
Dr. Rhoades received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2008. He was awarded an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, spent 2008-2009 as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Berkeley, 2009-2011 as an Instructor of Applied Mathematics at MIT, and 2011-2012 as an NTT Assistant Professor at USC. Dr. Rhoades joined the UCSD faculty in 2012.Dr. Rhoades's research is in algebraic combinatorics. He has used representation theoretic tools in Kazhdan-Lusztig theory and cluster algebras to obtain enumerative results related to the cyclic sieving phenomenon. Dr. Rhoades has also written papers about reflection groups and related structures in Coxeter-Catalan combinatorics.
