Alexander Barvinok graduated from the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) State University in USSR (now Russia) in 1988; his advisor was Anatoly Vershik. His thesis was on the combinatorics and computational complexity of polytopes with symmetry. He is still interested in polytopes, symmetry and complexity. For the past 20+ years he has been living in Ann Arbor and he kind of likes it there.
