    My research interests include algebraic geometry, algebraic combinatorics, and representation theory. Much of my work is in one way or another connected to enumerative algebraic geometry, which is an area concerned with counting certain types of geometric objects or configurations. A wide variety of techniques (combinatorial, algebraic, geometric) are applicable to these types of problems. Here are a few links to some relevant survey articles (written by others).
