I am an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Lehigh University. My field is algebraic combinatorics, and specific research areas which interest me include Hecke algebra characters, (dual) canonical bases of quantum groups, Kazhdan-Lusztig theory, total nonnegativity, Schur nonnegativity, and symmetric functions. For more information, see my CV, papers and presentations, research plan, and teaching statement.

I completed my Ph.D. in May, 2000 under the supervision of Richard Stanley in the MIT 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 Dartmouth College Department of Mathematics, and as a visiting assitant professor in the Haverford College Department of Mathematics. I have been a visitor at the Institut Mittag-Leffler, University of Pennsylvania Department of Mathematics, and Universidad de los Andes Departamento de Matemáticas.
