Research Interests

My research interests are in combinatorics. Most specifically in discrete geometry and the use of algebra in combinatorial problems. Lately I have been looking at the possible structure that a collection of lines in the plane can have where each line contains many points of a cartesian product. I have also been looking at a special case of the Erdős unit distance problem. I am also interested in rational distance sets in general position in the plane.
