I'm a fifth year graduate student in the University of Washington math department, working in algebraic combinatorics. My advisor is Sara Billey.

This year I'm organizing the combinatorics preseminar for undergraduates. If you're an undergraduate interested in combinatorics, or you've never heard of it but find Wikipedia's description interesting, check it out. (It's not running this quarter [Spring 2013], however).
My research focuses on problems in the vicinity of representation theory of the symmetric groups (in characteristic zero, so more combinatorics than algebra). I'm interested in the connections to Grassmannians and flag varieties, and to permutation combinatorics via Schubert polynomials and Stanley symmetric functions.
