I am interested in matroid theory, especially its interplay with discrete, algebraic, and polyhedral geometry. At the moment I am particularly interested in

  1. characterizing isomorphism classes of active orders of matroids; and
  2. the combinatorics of cubical complexes generalizing cubical tilings of the zonotope arising from a  representable oriented matroid to the non-representable case.
