Dr. Sarah K Mason
Assistant Professor
Department of Mathematics
Wake Forest University

Welcome to my website!

I am an assistant professor of mathematics at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina. I began my position at Wake in 2010, after finishing a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California (partly at UC-Berkeley and partly at UC-San Diego). I also spent time as a postdoctoral fellow at CRM and as an assistant professor at Davidson College.

Research Interests

My main research interests are in algebraic combinatorics and symmetric functions. The types of problems I work on typically involve investigating structural properties of symmetric, quasisymmetric, and nonsymmetric polynomials and their representation theoretic interpretations. I have recently also been thinking about symmetric chain decompositions of certain partially ordered sets.
