Education:

Ph.D. in Mathematics (Algebraic Geometry), University of Texas at Austin, 1999;

B.S. in Mathematics, Carnegie Mellon University 1992

Research summary:

I have been working in areas of Graph Theory and Discrete Mathematics in recent years; my interests extend further to the intersection of algebra and geometry.
