Welcome to my homepage. I am a Mathematics PhD student at Rutgers University. My advisor is József Beck. By the usual mathematicians' convention, this site is perpetually under construction. For now, feel free to read any of the papers below.

We show that for any two linear homogeneous equations E_{0}, E_{1}, each with at least
three variables and coefficients not all the same sign, any 2-coloring of Z^{+} admits
monochromatic solutions of color 0 to E0 or monochromatic solutions of color 1 to E1.
We define the 2-color off-diagonal Rado number RR(E_{0}; E_{1}) to be the smallest N such
that [1,N] must admit such solutions. We determine a lower bound for RR(E_{0}, E_{1})
in certain cases when each E_{i} is of the form a_{1}x_{1} + ... + a_{n}x_{n} = z
as well as find the exact value of RR(E_{0}, E_{1}) when each is of the form
x_{1} + a_{2}x_{2} + ... + a_{n}x_{n} = z. We then present a Maple package
that determines upper bounds for off-diagonal Rado numbers of a few particular types, and use it to quickly prove
two previous results for diagonal Rado numbers.

There exists a minimum integer N such that any 2-coloring of {1, 2, ... , N} admits a
monochromatic solution to x+y+kz = *l*w for k,*l* in Z^{+}, where N depends on k and *l*.
We determine N when *l*-k is in {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, and for all k, *l* for which
(1/2)((*l*-k)^{2} -2)(*l*-k+1) ≤ k ≤ *l* - 4, as well as for arbitrary k when *l* = 2.

My research interests are in combinatorics. Too vague - currently, I am most interested in analytical methods in combinatorics, particularly in areas like graph & hypergraph theory, additive combinatorics, and some types of game theory. A few specific interests are within Ramsey Theory, especially Ramsey Theory on the integers. This means I have an interest in both Ramsey Theory (on the whole), and on the theory of arithmetic structure in the integers. I am still exploring other areas of combinatorics and related fields as specific interests. I would characterize my interest in mathematics, in general, as very broad. (There are many topics of mathematics that I find very compelling, although I only have a basic familiarity with them.) I enjoy the interdisciplinary nature of certain types of mathematics, and appreciate collaboration between mathematicians with diverse interests. Also, my Erdős number is 3 (check here).
