Matthew James Willis

My research interests are in Algebraic Combinatorics, often with applications in Representation Theory. In particular I have studied Type A Demazure characters (key polynomials) and their many combinatorial methods of production, one of which I have contributed. Recent analysis of this method has lead to a "parabolic generalization" of the Catalan numbers which we have found to be quite interesting.
