Dean Valen Johnson has named Professof Sarah Witherspoon as our next Department Head, effective
September 1, 2019.
Li Ying has just passed his thesis defence!
Fall 2019 I will be teaching
Math 300H: Foundations of Mathematics and
Math 662: Real Algebraic Geometry.
TAMU student Mohammed Haque interviewed me and uploaded a video of that interview (the link is above).
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.
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.
Numerical algebraic geometry, applications of algebraic geometry, real algebraic geometry,
algebraic combinatorics, Hopf Algebras, Discrete and Computational Geometry, tropical
