Daniel Weiner doesn’t just have one degree from the University of Kentucky but three—the last of which is a Ph.D. in statistics. From UK, Weiner transitioned into a career within the pharmacometrics field where he is now a Senior Vice President at the Certara Corporation offering scientific software and consulting services to the pharmaceutical industry.

Just because Neville Fogarty is working on an advanced degree doesn't keep him from following diverse interests. In addition to being a grad student in the Department of Mathematics, he plays Ultimate Frisbee, writes crossword puzzles, and participated in the Tetris tournament last semester. In this podcast, he shares some of...

The Department of Mathematics is excited to welcome professor Bert Guillou to its faculty!

Professor Guillou joins us this fall researching topology, the mathematical study of surfaces. He is interested in homotopy theory, the study of "transforming" one surface or shape into another, a field with applications in quantum physics, robotics, and even molecular biology.

This podcast is part of a series highlighting the new faculty members who joined the College of Arts and...
