My research area is the interface between combinatorics
and algebra. My primary interest is the theory of convex polytopes,
both as important mathematical objects in their own right and also for
their applications to toric and tropical geometry. I am also
developing a line of research in algebraic complexity theory.
I obtained my Ph.D. in mathematics in 2007 from the University of Washington
under the direction of Rekha Thomas. Here is my CV.
