Research:

I do research in algebraic combinatorics. Generally I am interested in using techniques from group representation theory to compute numerical invariants of interesting and beautiful combinatorial structures. For more information, see my papers.

Undergraduate Research Projects:

Here you can read about research projects I have done with undergraduates.

Personal:

I own a couple of telescopes.

Before I gave my life to mathematics, I had a short stint as a dock builder.
