I am an
assistant professor in the
Department of Mathematics at
My field is algebraic combinatorics, and specific research areas
which interest me include (dual) canonical bases of quantum groups,
and symmetric function inequalities.
For more information, see my
papers and presentations,
summary of undergraduate research supervision.
I completed my Ph.D. in May, 2000
under the supervision of
Department of Mathematics.
I then worked as a VIGRE postdoctoral instructor in the
University of Michigan Department of
Mathematics, as a John Wesley Young instructor in the
Department of Mathematics,
and as a visiting assitant professor in the
Haverford College Department of Mathematics.
My academic family is listed in the
Rota family tree, and other
mathematicians whose interests are related to combinatorics appear in my
combinatorics photo album.
This spring I am teaching
Math 251 (Combinatorics) and Math 428 (Fields and Modules).
The webpages for these courses are
located on Lehigh's
I am also supervising a graduate reading group based on Karen Smith's
Invitation to Algebraic Geometry.
