I am a math professor at the University of Puget Sound, a liberal arts college in Tacoma, Washington.
I use this blog to talk some about my own work, posts that I find interesting on Mathematics Stack Exchange (a math question-and-answer site I used to regularly hang out on), and whatever else I happen to be thinking about mathematically. My background is in operations research, and my interests tend to lie at the intersection of combinatorics, probability, and optimization. Since 2017 I’ve gotten more interested in mathematics in computer-based games, so there are more posts on that topic since then.
