Matt Willis's research area is algebraic combinatorics, with ties to representation theory. More specifically, he is interested in tableaux descriptions of polynomials which are often initially defined in a representation theoretical setting. These tableaux descriptions provide new information about the underlying algebraic structures.
Willis teaches the Calculus sequence, Introduction to Statistics, and core courses for the math major. Specific courses are listed in his Matthew J. Willis Curriculum Vitae.
