Interests: Number Theory, Arithmetic Dynamics, Non-archimedean Dynamics, Berkovich spaces
Gregory S. Call
Senior Advisor to the President; Peter R. Pouncey Professor of Mathematics
Interests: Number theory; especially arithmetic geometry, arithmetic dynamics, elliptic curves and cryptography; and applications of mathematics to the social sciences including voting and game theory.
Michael C. Ching
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Interests: Algebraic topology and homotopy theory, especially Goodwillie calculus and operads
David A. Cox
William J. Walker Professor of Mathematics; Chair of Mathematics and Statistics
Interests: My research interests include Algebraic Geometry, Commutative Algebra, Geometric Modeling, Number Theory, and the History of Mathematics.
Jennie D'Ambroise
Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Interests: My research focuses on numerical and exact methods for nonlinear partial differential and difference equations. I am particularly interested in applications to mathematical physics including general relativity, quantum mechanics, and optics. These are great topics to discuss with students and I regard teaching as integral to achieving the right balance in my work.
Harris B. Daniels
Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Interests: Algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry, in particular elliptic and modular curves.

Interests: Statistics, Biostatistics, Psychiatric Epidemiology, Mathematical Sciences, Statistical Computing, Statistical Education, Missing Data Methods, Juggling
Tanya L. Leise
Associate Professor of Mathematics (On Leave 1/1/2015 - 6/30/2015)
Interests: My research focuses on analysis of biological oscillators like the mammalian circadian clock, including relevant mathematical areas in differential equations and dynamical systems, as well as time-frequency analysis involving Fourier and wavelet transforms. I have also co-authored a variety of expository articles aimed at introducing undergraduates to cutting edge applied math research.
