Zach joined the mathematics department in 2010. Previously he earned an undergraduate degree at the University of California—Santa Barbara and a PhD from University of Michigan. He taught at Southeastern Louisiana University and was a visiting assistant professor at Texas A&M University before joining Boise State University.
Zach’s research is in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. He works primarily on Waring rank and generalized tensor ranks. Other research interests include multiplier ideals, arrangements of points, hyperplanes, and linear subspaces, and combinatorial aspects of commutative algebra and algebraic geometry.
