Ryan R. Martin

I am a professor at Iowa State University and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Order, published by Springer.

My fields of interest are extremal poset theory, graph theory and extremal and probabilistic combinatorics.

My research is partially supported by a grant from the Simons Foundation (#353292)

    A man would make but a sorry chemist if he attended to that department of human knowledge alone.  If your wish is to become really a man of science and not merely a petty experimentalist, I should advise you to apply every branch of natural philosophy, including mathematics.
