Current projects: Graph theory models relationships that come in pairs. Abstractly, a graph is a set of vertices (drawn as dots) and 2-subsets of those vertices (drawn as line segments between the dots). I'm interested in a wide range of graph theory topics.  I’ve recently worked on projects in extremal graph theory (e.g., maximizing the number of a particular substructure that a graph has), the Lights Out games on graphs, fault-free tilings, and others. I’m particularly interested lately in determining and distinguishing colorings. (Feel free to google any of the words in this blurb!) I also have a special interest in getting students paid to do research.
