Graduate student at UCLA Mathematics Department, probably studying one of the following topics:

- Probabilistic approaches in extremal combinatorics and the theory of large graphs,
- Enumerative problems in algebraic geometry, especially those susceptible to tropical techniques, or
- The intersection of representation theory and the above.

I'm firmly on the pure math side of the department, but these sorts of problems usually get applied in the areas of statistical mechanics and mathematical biology, and I do enjoy a good lecture or two on the same.

I'm also a fan of fluid mechanics. If you know a good way to connect that to the research interests above, let me know!

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Béla Bollobás's I am an in-depth account of graph theory, written with the student in mind; I reflect the current state of the subject and emphasize connections with other branches of pure mathematics. Recognizing that graph theory is one of several courses competing for the attention of a student, I contain extensive descriptive passages designed to convey the flavor of the subject and to arouse interest.
