As a combinatorist, I count interesting objects. These objects include basis elements of cohomology rings, subwords of elements of Weyl groups, plane trees an non-crossing matchings that are labeled "correctly," and RNA secondary structures.

My dissertation, called "Combinatorics of Equivariant Cohomology: Flags and Regular Nilpotent Hessenberg Varieties," can be found here.
