Mathematics Faculty Members


Dr. John Williams - Department Chair

Dr. Williams' academic career started in Complex Variables, in particular Univalent Function Theory. The Bieberbach conjecture was solved just when he graduated, but the problem on the exterior remains unsolved, to which he keeps up with the new results. Go


Dr. Diego Benardete

Dr. Diego Benardete studies pure and applied aspects of differential equations and dynamical systems. I also have a serious amateur’s interest in the history and philosophy of mathematics.  Go


Dr. Robert Decker

Differential Equations, Probability, Use of Technology in Mathematics Education Go


Dr. Aslihan Demirkaya

Dr. Demirkaya studied industrial engineering and mathematics in undergrad and then decided to continue on mathematics. Her research interests are Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations and Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Systems.  Go


Dr. Mako E. Haruta

Dr. Haruta has a background in Dynamical Systems. Her current focus is on mathematics curriculum reform. She has received grants to integrate technology and curriculum reform into college mathematics courses and has published numerous articles and presented her results at regional and national conferences. Go


Dr. Joel Kagan

Dr. Joel Kagan has served as Chair of the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science for more than 20 years and as Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences for 18 years.  Go


Dr. Raymond McGivney

Use of technology and peer instruction to help students learn mathematics Go


Dr. Jean McGivney-Burelle - Director, Secondary Math Education

Dr. McGivney-Burelle's specialty is in the area of K-16 mathematics education. In particular, she is interested in the use of technology to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics and the mathematical content preparation of prospective teachers.  Go


Dr. Ben Pollina

Dr. Ben Pollina's main focus is on the use of technology, primarily computer algebra and Internet homework systems in the teaching of mathematics. Go


Dr. Larissa B. Schroeder

Dr. Schroeder’s specialty is in the area of K – 16 mathematics education. In particular, she is interested in issues associated with the teaching in learning of calculus and the importance of calculus in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education (STEM) and the mathematical preparation of teachers  Go


Dr. Mark Turpin

Dr. Mark Turpin has learned to juggle, learned to solve Rubik’s cube, raised 3 children, climbed Long’s Peak, and solved a handful of unsolved math problems. Go


Dr. Fei Xue

Dr. Xue’s research specialties include difference and differential equations, as well as a new area called dynamical equations on time scales.  Go
