In this talk, I will present recent progress in realizing 2d (0,2) theories in terms of branes. The novel Type IIA brane configuration, which we call Brane Brick Models, consists of D4-branes suspended from a NS5-brane wrapping a holomorphic surface, tessellating a 3-torus. Brane Brick Models are T-dual to D1-branes over singular toric Calabi-Yau 4-folds and fully encode the large class of 2d (0,2) quiver gauge theories on the worldvolume of the D1-branes. By use of techniques from combinatorics and tropical geometry, I will illustrate how Brane Brick Models streamline the connection between the 2d (0,2) quiver gauge theories and the probed Calabi-Yau geometries. As an application, I will explain how Gadde-Gukov-Putrov triality is realized in terms of branes as a local mutation of Brane Brick models.
