Academic Year 2016–2017: I am on leave at the Fields Institute in Toronto for the academic year.
For the Spring 2017 semester, I am teaching the distance course Math 629: History of Mathematics.
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.
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 link with more information.
I am in the middle of a four-year 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 full-time faculty member at Texas A&M. Read the announcement.
