I am the Section Editor of the brand-new Understanding Mathematics section of Frontiers for Young Minds, an open-access journal with articles written by scientists and reviewed by kids. We are looking for help at all levels: editors, authors, science mentors, and of course kids to review! Lots more information here.

I oppose the legalization of concealed-carry weapons on university campuses. This is my personal opinion and not the official position of KU or the Department of Mathematics, although it is shared by former Chancellor Gray-Little, many Distinguished Professors at KU, the American Association of University Professors, and a large majority of students, staff and faculty at public universities in Kansas.

Additional information for students


My research interests include combinatorics, algebraic geometry, discrete geometry, and computational commutative algebra. I especially like topics in which these fields intersect: simplicial and cell complexes, configuration varieties (such as picture spaces of graphs), Coxeter groups, hyperplane arrangements, Stanley-Reisner theory, matroids, Gröbner bases, and combinatorial Hopf algebras. I am always happy when combinatorial techniques can be used to solve problems from other areas of pure or applied mathematics.
