My General Research Interests
My field of research is enumerative and algebraic combinatorics, with interests in rook theory, pattern avoidance, permutation statistics, Stirling numbers, generating functions, and partition theory.
My Ph.D. was conferrred on June 18th, 2006 from the University of California, San Diego.
Thesis: A General Rook Model For Product Formulas & Poly-Stirling Numbers
Thesis Advisor: Dr. Jeff Remmel , UC, San Diego
My CV as of 10/15/2012.
My Recent Research Talks (* = invited talk)
What Is My Erdös Number?
Because I always get asked this by students who hear about Paul Erdös and get interested in this sort of thing, I did a little poking around and found that my Erdös number is 3. The lineage is as follows:
- I have written a paper with Jeff Remmel who has an Erdös number of 2.
- Jeff Remmel has written multiple papers with Henry (a.k.a. Hal) Kierstead who has an Erdös number of 1.
- Hal Kierstead wrote ``The Dimension of Random Ordered Sets" with Paul Erdös and W.T. Trotter in 1991. This paper was published in Random Structures Algorithms, 2, pages 253-275.
