Samuel Payne

Samuel Payne received his PhD from the University of Michigan in 2006 under the supervision of William Fulton. His thesis,Toric vector bundles, gives a surprising and simple construction of complete toric varieties on which there are no nontrivial equivariant bundles of rank less than or equal to three.  Sam was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of four years beginning June 2006.
