I am interested in algebraic combinatorics and its interactions with polytopal theory, enumerative commutative algebra and, most recently, physics. I particularly like to consider geometrically-motivated problems.

My research areas include:

- Combinatorial commutative algebra
- Combinatorial topology
- Connections to Hopf algebras and quasi-symmetric functions
- Face-enumerative properties of polytopes
- Mathematical aspects of string theory
- Partially ordered sets
- q-analogues and enumeration
- Subspace arrangements

Recent preprints, as well as a list of my publications and abstracts of my papers, can be found on my homepage http://www.ms.uky.edu/~readdy.
