I am an Outside T.A. in Mathematics
at Penn. I graduated from Brown University in
May of 2007, and received my Ph.D. here at Penn in December of 2012. You can read my dissertation, ``Combinatorial Structures and Generating Functions of Fishburn Numbers, Parking Functions, and Tesler matrices", here.
My general research
interests are in enumerative and algebraic combinatorics and I often use bijective proofs. I've spent a lot of time working with parking functions lately; I've also worked on Fishburn numbers, permutation patterns, integer partitions, and rook theory.
