Jennifer Johnson Leung
Jennifer Johnson-Leung, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
My research in number theory is motivated by the study of special values of L-functions, and in particular the equivariant Tamagawa number conjecture. The general conjecture is an elegant, yet powerful, statement which implies, among other things, the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture and Stark's conjecture.

Paul Joyce
Paul Joyce, Ph.D.
Dean of College of Science & Professor
My research focuses on developing and rigorously testing statistical methods and stochastic models to describe genetic phenomena. These include models and methods to: predict how viruses adapt; show the effect of antibiotic resistance genes encoded on plasmids; predict ancestral relationships among species; and to understand the ecological structure of bacterial communities in biofilms. This broad focus has lead to collaborations with researchers in phylogenetics, population genetics, theoretical ecology, mircobial ecology, experimental evolution, conservation genetics, and the list is growing.

Cynthia Piez
Cynthia Piez, M.S.
Senior Instructor
I am interested in the impact of technology on the teaching and learning of mathematics at the undergraduate level. In particular I am working with prospective secondary mathematics teachers and investigating the ways in which they interpret and link various representations. The mathematical context involves the investigation of properties and characteristics of functions in the presence of technology.

Christopher Williams
Christopher Williams, Ph.D.
Department Chair and Professor<br />Affiliate Professor of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
My research interests are on problems in statistical genetics, biostatistics, and statistical methods applied to issues in natural resources. One of the topics that I work on is the analysis of human twin data. Another area of interest is the estimation of disease prevalence from various types of data, such as in groups of fish that are collected and have their tissue pooled to test for disease status.

Dr. Scott Nuismer
Scott L. Nuismer, Ph.D.
My research focuses on the ecology and evolution of species interactions. The overall aim is to better understand how coevolution shapes patterns of biodiversity and the geographic distributions of interacting species. Work in my lab addresses these issues with a combination of mathematical modeling and field studies.
