I will explain some connections that I have encountered in my own research between algebraic combinatorics, especially Macdonald polynomials, and other areas of mathematics such as representation theory and statistics. I will describe some results and open problems in this direction. 
This talk is directed at a general audience and is intended to serve as an "appetizer". In particular I will not assume any specialized knowledge of any of the subjects being discussed.
