- Director of Graduate Studies
I am currently Director STATS, a collaboration between the American Statistical Association and Sense About Science, USA. Our mission is to improve the public debate on how science, quantitative, and mathematical issues are covered in the media. This is in addition to my position in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
My research is in symplectic geometry, group actions and related combinatorics. Among my interests are: Schubert polynomials and the intersection properties of Schubert varieties, toric varieties, equivariant cohomology, moment maps and symplectic and hyperk�hler reduction, and orbifold cohomology. I have also become involved in the media's use of statistics and mathematics. Feel free to read my papers.
