New Journal:
The SIAM has just approved a new journal, the
SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry
(SIAGA),
with Bernd Sturmfels the first editor in chief.
I am one of the corresponding editors, and we began accepting submissions on 23 March 2016.
Academic Year 2016–2017: I will be on
leave at the Fields Institute to attend their thematic programme on
Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry in
the Autumn, and then will stay there during Winter/Spring 2017.
For Potential Students:
I am always looking for students interested in working with me.
Feel free to come and talk with me, look at the resources on these pages,
including this information page.
Research
Interests:
Numerical algebraic geometry, applications of algebraic geometry, real algebraic geometry,
algebraic combinatorics, Hopf Algebras, Discrete and Computational Geometry, tropical
geometry.
Letters of Recommendation
I am willing to write letters for deserving candidates, but please read
this before asking me for a letter.
Eschew Elsevier!
Two new(er) lows:
Elsevier
is now suing authors, and
Elsevier
sues ETH Zürich for distributing articles.
Join the Elsevier
Boycott.
Older reasons to avoid Elsevier.
Elsevier
has published fake Journals,
more,
and
others that engage in unacceptable
editorial practices.
More details.
See also Tim Gowers'
blog
and here is a

with more information.
I am in the middle of a fouryear appointment (5/14–4/18) as a visiting adjunct
professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of
Waterloo. This means that I will visit Waterloo for a week or two each of the next few years,
but remain a fulltime faculty member at Texas A&M.

I am one of the corresponding editors for the new SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry,
which will begin accepting submissions on 23 March 2016.
I am an Associate Editor for the American Mathematical Monthly.


My terms as associate editor for the SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics, the
Canadian Journal of Mathematics, the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin, ended in December 2015, and
I am stepping down from those responsibilities.

 I am a former member of the
American Institute of Mathematics
open textbooks initiative
editorial board, and a suporter of their work.
