 Research Interests: Optimization & Computational Algebra
 Background: I received a Ph.D. in Operations Research
from Cornell University in 1994 under the supervision of
Bernd Sturmfels. After postdoctoral positions at the Cowles
Foundation for Economics at Yale University (with Herb
Scarf) and the KonradZuseZentrum for Informationstechnik
in Berlin, I joined the math department at Texas A&M
University as an assistant professor. I am currently a
Professor of Mathematics at the University of Washington,
and held the Robert R. and Elaine F. Phelps Professorship
from 20082012.
