combinatorics. Among my interests are: Schubert polynomials and the
intersection properties of Schubert varieties, toric varieties,
cohomology, moment maps and symplectic and hyperkähler reduction,
and orbifold cohomology. I
have also become involved in the media's use of statistics and
Feel free to read my papers.
