Interview TAMU student Mohammed Haque interviewed me and uploaded a video of that interview (the link is above).
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.
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.
