My research interests include Discrete Mathematics and its conections with other fields.
I received my Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Professor Victor Reiner. My Thesis is 0-Hecke algebra actions on flags, polynomials, and Stanley-Reisner rings.
I use mathematics software such as GAP, Magma, and Sage in my research.
