Associate Professor of Mathematics
Teaches courses in mathematics. He is interested in all areas of geometry; in particular, projective geometry, a subject that has ties to the idea of perspective in art. He is also fascinated by prime numbers and patterns in their distribution. Ph.D., mathematics, University of Iowa.
Professor of Mathematics and Statistics
Teaches statistics courses, and her main professional interest is in statistics education. She is co-author of Stat 2: Building Models for a World of Data, 2e (2018), a textbook for the second introductory course in statistics. Ph.D., statistics, Iowa State University.
Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics
Teaches courses in mathematics, statistics, and computer science. He has been a leader in bringing computing technology into teaching and learning at Cornell. M.S., mathematics; M.S., computer science, University of Iowa.
Professor of Mathematics
Teaches courses in mathematics and introductory statistics. His professional interests include algebra and the mathematics of origami. He managed Cornell’s first internet connection and networks and served as the college’s first webmaster. Ph.D., mathematics, University of Notre Dame.
Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Statistics
Research interests are in mathematical biology, specifically in modeling host-parasite systems in alfalfa crops. Other topics of interest are disease modeling, predator-prey systems, differential equations, partial differential equations, linear algebra, and numerical analysis. Ph.D., mathematical sciences with emphasis in pure and applied mathematics, Utah State University.
