Here is a list of what I've taught in the past.

About Me and My Research:

I am generally interested in all areas of algebra and combinatorics. My main focus is currently on enumerative and algebraic combinatorics and specifically on permutation patterns and Coxeter groups. Other interests of mine include nonassociative algebra (loops and quasigroups), and other group-like objects such as semigroups and Hopf algebras.

I completed my Ph.D. in June 2009 from the University of Denver under the supervision of Prof. Petr Vojtechovsky.

Curriculum Vitae (Current as of Jan. 9, 2014)


Here is where you can find me every day (at least in theory).

About the top (and more about me):

Outside of being a math geek, I am an avid reader and am also very interested in the culture and history of France. The pictures on various pages within this site represent some of my favorite French authors and some famous French mathematicians. On this page, the French authors are (clockwise from top left): Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola and Jules Verne. The French mathematicians are (clockwise from top left): Joseph Fourier, Emilie du Châtelet, Evariste Galois and Joseph-Louis Lagrange.

Which Springer GTM am I?

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be J.-P. Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups.

My creator is a Professor at the College de France. He has previously published a number of books, including Groupes Algebriques et Corps de Classes, Corps Locaux, and Cours d'Arithmetique (A Course in Arithmetic, published by Springer-Verlag as Vol. 7 in the Graduate Texts in Mathematics).
