## John Stembridge's Research Profile

My research interests are in combinatorics, with particular emphasis on
the following areas:

- Topics related to algebra, especially representation theory
- Coxeter groups and root systems
- Computational problems and algorithms in algebra
- Enumerative combinatorics
- Symmetric functions
- Hypergeometric series and q-series
