Research Interests


New! Discrete and Computational Geometry The Goodman-Pollack Fest/Feast November 8-9, 2014, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York, New York.

New! For the fall of 2014 I am visiting the Simons Institute in Berkeley, for the program on Algorithms and Complexity in Algebraic Geometry.

Old I am co-organizing a workshop on Tools from Algebraic Geometry at IPAM, LA, California (April 7-11, 2014). The workshop is one of the four during the special program on Algebraic Techniques for Combinatorial and Computational Geometry (Mar 10-Jun 13, 2014). Apply directly to IPAM via this link if interested in participating.

New! I am co-organizing the workshop on Real Number Complexity as part of the FoCM Conference, Montevideo, Uruguay (Dec 11-13, 2014).

I co-organize every semester (with E. Mukhin, H. Schenk, V. Tarasov, U. Walther and A. Yong) the Illinois-Purdue Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics Day held once every semester. Click here for more information.

Old I co-organized (with J.M. Landsberg and M. Rojas) a workshop on Mathematical aspects of the P vs NP problem and its variants at the new NSF math institute, ICERM, Providence, RI (Aug 1-5, 2011).
