  • Office hours: Thurs 1:55–2:45 (right after 2210 class), Mon 9PM via Zoom (link provided to students), and by appointment in MONT 239. I'm happy to answer questions or schedule appointments by email, which I check frequently (except for course content questions, which should go to the online disucssion).

Email is generally the best way to reach me. I try to block out most mornings for research and writing (or it languishes).

In Fall 2019 I am teaching Math 2210 (Ugrad Applied Linear Algebra) and Math 5020 (Grad topics course in Dynamical Algebraic Combinatorics).

I am currently a tenured associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut in Storrs (a very safe place to live though others may be better), where I arrived in Fall 2005. My main research interests are in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics, and I've also done a good deal of work in educational outreach. From Fall 2005 through Fall 2012, I also directed the Quantitative Learning Center (Q Center) as 50% of my appointment. Here is a partial list of UConn acronyms that I've needed to learn since I arrived. How many can you name without looking?

Before coming to UConn I held faculty positions in the math departments of the following academic institutions:

I was a student at:

Of course, my life has always been measured in academic years.

Along the way I directed, taught in, and/or participated in a number of summer programs. Including
