## My interview

Readers of this blog will remember my strong advocacy for taking interviews. In a surprising turn of events, Toufik Mansour interviewed me for the journal *Enumerative Combinatorics and Applications* (ECA). **Here is that interview**. Not sure if I am the right person to be interviewed, but if you want to see other Toufik’s interviews — **click here** (I mentioned some of them earlier). I am looking forward to read interviews of many more people in ECA and other journals.

**P.S.** The interview asks also about this blog, so it seems fitting to mention it here.

**Corrections:** (March 11, 2021) **1.** I misread “What three results do you consider the most influential in combinatorics during the last thirty years?” question as asking about *my own* three results that are specifically in combinatorics. Ugh, to the original question – none of *my* results would go on that list. **2.** In the pattern avoidance question, I misstated the last condition: I am asking for *e*^{c(Π)} to be non-algebraic. Sorry everyone for all the confusion!

Great interview! I especially liked this: “The reason I choose such topics is usually not because I want to convince anyone of anything, but to represent a minority opinion, to give a piece of mind to people with similar points of view, that they are not alone.” Please continue writing on “controversial topics”.

I am now checking out all the other interviews there.
