About me

picture of meI am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Oberlin College. Before coming to Oberlin, I was a post doc at Berkeley, a grad student at Michigan, and an undergrad at Wake Forest.

My research interests lie at the intersection of mathematics and theoretical computer science. Some objects I like to think about: the set of integer points contained in a polyhedron, generating functions, economic games. Check out my talks to get a feel for what I do (with lots of pictures). Or read one of my papers to see the gritty details. If you're more interested in my teaching, have a look at the classes I've taught.

I live in Oberlin, Ohio with my wife, Angela, and our two dogs, Oberon and Lexi.
