Joint with Leo Patimo. We give a complete (and surprisingly simple) description of the affine Hecke category for SL(3) in characteristic zero. More precisely, we calculate the Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials, give a recursive formula for the projectors defining indecomposable objects and, for each coefficient of a Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomial, we produce a set of morphisms with such a cardinality.
Joint with Geordie Williamson, to appear in Journal of Algebra. When Soergel's conjecture is satisfied, we produce (finally!) the canonical light leaves, that do not depend on choices. This gives a new approach towards finding a combinatorial interpretation of Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials.
Joint work with Gastón Burrull and Paolo Sentinelli. . Advances in Mathematics 352 (2019) 246-264. In this paper we find the characteristic p analogue of the classical Jones-Wenzl idempotent. We hope this to be a building block for the p-canonical basis as sl_2 is a building block for the representation theory of semi-simple Lie algebras.
Joint work with David Plaza. Proc. Lond. Math. Soc. Vol. 121 (2020) Issue3, 656-701. We conjecture (and prove the "graded degree part") an equivalence between the type A affine Hecke category in positive characteristic and a certain "blob category" that we introduce as a quotient of KLR algebras. This conjecture has been proved recently in an amazing paper by Chris Bowman, Anton Cox, Amit Hazi!! It opens lots of questions...
