Research Interests

Discrete Geometry

Prof. Martin's primary research area is combinatorics, the mathematical study of discrete structures. A central theme of his work is the interplay of combinatorics, particularly graph theory, with geometry and topology. A long-term goal of Prof. Martin's has been to understand fundamental geometric invariants by studying certain algebraic varieties whose points parametrize the embeddings of a graph. A more recent research interest is cellular and simplicial generalizations of the matrix-tree theorem, and their consequences for tree enumeration.
