Summer 2020 Schedule

My schedule varies from week to week. The best way to find me is email.

Current news: (5/28/20)

What a strange semester spring 2020 turned out to be. And now... on to summer.

Right after spring semester finals ended, I was delighted to serve as the opening keynote speaker for the Valparaiso Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression, which took place virtually for the first time. You can see my talk here.

I had been really looking forward to hosting Eighteenth International Conference on Permutation Patterns at Valparaiso this summer. While an in-person conference is no longer an option, I'm making plans to host a virtual Permutation Patterns workshop instead.

In July, I'll return to MathPath for my second year as a breakout instructor, albeit this year in virtual format.

Otherwise, like everyone else, I'm waiting to see when life is less virtual and more in-person again.
