Biography

Expertise: study of the symmetry and combinatorial structure of polyhedra, convex polytopes and abstract polytopes, especially developing combinatorial representations of polytopes through the use of regular covers of polytopes and their monodromy (or connection) groups. Discrete geometry, mathematical art, and recreational mathematics.

Interests
I’m very interested in the intersection between mathematics and art. I maintain a site debunking mathematics myths. I’m also interested in projects dedicated to using mathematics to advance social justice. I’m not involved, but this one sure looks cool!
