Probability- Developed a 3 week course on introductory probability that was used in a calculus class.Research interests:With Adriano Garsia :
Cryptography- created programs to break codes, demonstrations to present material on the Web, researched new topics in cryptography for use in existing course. Web page .
Computer Animated Statistics- helped develop a new course that uses Java based Web applications and Mathematica to learn introductory statistics. Web page .
With Hubert Halkin, Don Smith and John Evans:
Applied Algebra- Developed a group theory computer package and an assignment to accompany it for use in a course on modern algebra.
Algebraic combinatorics, bijective combinatorics, symmetric functions, root systems, and Hecke algebras.Thesis:On The Action of the Hall-Littlewood Vertex Operator
My special obsession is the positivity of the Macdonald q,t-Kostka coefficients
