TAGS 2018 The NSF has agreed to fund the TAGS (Texas Algebraic Geometry Symposium) meetings for 2018–2020 at Texas A&M, University of Texas, and Rice University. DMS-1758574.
MEGA Conference Web page The MEGA conferences (Effective Mtheods in Algebraic Geometry) now have a parmanent web site
New Journal There is a new journal in Algebraic Combinatorics. This is intended to supplant Springer's Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics. Its interim Editors-in-Chief are Satoshi Murai and Victor Reiner. It adheres to the principles of Fair Open Access.
Robert Williams, defended his Ph.D. thesis Restrictions on Galois Groups of Schubert Problems, and has accepted a two-year teaching postdoc at Rose Hulman Institute.
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.
