Projects

My projects fall into four categories: day job, freelance, math, and hobby. I try to limit myself to one project at a time in each category so I don't get too bogged down. My interests are varied, but I am usually working on things related to programming, education, mathematical research, or sports.




Day Job

I am in my second year at St. Mary's Catholic High School. I am teaching physics, computer programming, calculus I, and calculus II. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have been appointed to the "House Dean" position, as well as math department chair. I am looking forward to being involved in the school at another level.


You can see some information on classes I taught previously here.




Freelance

I decided to move my freelance work to an actual business. You can check out dadams solutions llc to get details.


Previously, I built and designed websites for clients. I also extended some functionality and improved automation for a company which allowed them to grow much more quickly than they previously thought possible.




Math

I am currently working towards finishing my PhD in math. It has taken me much longer than I anticipated, but I am working on my dissertation problem and hope to complete it soon. My research is focused on algebraic cycles on Calabi-Yau threefolds. Specifically, how homological and algebraic equivalence differ when looking at codimension 1 cycles. We know that homological and algebraic equivalence are very different for non-rigid Calabi-Yau threefolds. The proofs are analytic in nature, and we are seeking a purely algebraic proof. The hope is that by finding such a proof, the rigid case would be more approachable.

Hobby

I am currently working on a Telegram bot to play Cards Against Humannity with friends. The game is currently functional, although it is down right now. I plan to finish it soon and run it for other to use. You can see my progress here.
