Welcome to my home page! Here you can find descriptions of my teaching, research, and other fun stuff. My research focuses mainly on various aspects of discrete optimization and spans both theory and computation. To see what I’m up to, check out the links below. If you want to read articles from the popular press about the kinds of things I work on, click here. You can also find me on any number of social networks, but I’ve given up on most of them. Professionally, I primarily use Twitter, Google+, Github, and Mendeley. I have high hopes for Figshare, but it still needs some work. We will see about Research Gate, too.

“In science, if you know what you are doing, you should not be doing it. In engineering, if you do not know what you are doing, you should not be doing it. Of course, you seldom, if ever, see either pure state.”

—Richard Hamming, The Art of Doing Science and Engineering

“I have no particular talents. I am only passionately curious.”

—Albert Einstein
