The Shape of Success: Carl Lee

In 2014, UK mathematics professor Carl Lee received the Mathematical Association of America’s Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics. This prestigious award is given by the MAA to honor instructors who have shown extreme success in their teaching and reached out to students in a way that goes beyond their own institution. Here, Lee talks about the different programs he has started and been involved with that helped him earn such an honor.

New Faculty 2012: Meet Bert Guillou

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 Sciences in the fall 2012 semester.
