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,
KazhdanLusztig 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 MittagLeffler,
University of Pennsylvania Department of Mathematics,
and
Universidad de los Andes Departamento de Matemáticas.
