My PhD research, as for my Masters, is in combinatorial game theory. I focus on all-small games:
games in which from every position either both players have at least one move or neither player has a move. Particular all-small
games that I'm interested in include Clobber, Mad Bishops, and all-small variants of Push, Shove, Runover, Dragover and Toppling Dominoes.
My largest other research area is graph theory. I have published on the n-e.c. property and graphs derived from combinatorial designs.
Chip-firing and searching problems are also of great interest to me.
