Welcome to my website!
I am an associate professor of mathematics at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina. I began my position at Wake in 2010, after finishing a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California (partly at UC-Berkeley and partly at UC-San Diego). I also spent time as a postdoctoral fellow at CRM and as an assistant professor at Davidson College. For my PhD, I studied symmetric functions and Macdonald polynomials with advisor Jim Haglund at the University of Pennsylvania.

My office is room 334 in Manchester Hall. My office telephone number is (336) 758-4083.
My main research interests are in algebraic combinatorics and symmetric functions. The types of problems I work on typically involve investigating structural properties of symmetric, quasisymmetric, and nonsymmetric polynomials. I have recently also been thinking about weighted voting, simple games, and combinatorial game theory.
