The Department of Mathematics is hiring one tenure-track assistant professor in the area of algebra and/or combinatorics. For more details, please see the departmental announcement or the posting on Mathjobs.
My research interests include combinatorics, algebraic geometry, discrete geometry, and computational commutative algebra. I especially like topics in which these fields intersect: configuration varieties (such as picture spaces of graphs, and Grassmannian, flag, and Schubert varieties), simplicial complexes, Coxeter groups, hyperplane arrangements, Stanley-Reisner theory, matroids, Gröbner bases, and lately Hopf algebras. I am always happy when combinatorial techniques can be used to solve problems from other areas of pure or applied mathematics.
