Ph.D., Mathematics, University of Minnesota, 2008
Brendon 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. Rhoades joined the UCSD faculty in 2012.
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. Rhoades has also written papers about reflection groups and related structures in Coxeter-Catalan combinatorics.
