Beryl Warner Williams

Maine Mathematician. Beryl Elizabeth Warner Williams (1914-1999), from Bangor, Maine, was the first Black student to graduate in mathematics from the University of Maine, in 1935. In 1940 she also obtained an MA in mathematics from UMaine.  She went on to teach math and English at Morgan State University where she became Dean of Continuing […]

Matthew Hernandez

Matthew Hernandez specializes in partial differential equations, with a focus on theoretical problems arising in the dynamics of bodies of fluids, gases, and plasma. He is especially interested in the possibility or impossibility of singularity formation along curves and surfaces defining their boundaries. .

Michael Rosbotham

Michael Rosbotham is interested in operator spaces and operator algebras.  Using methods of homological algebra, he investigates operator algebras via global properties in categories of operator space modules over the operator algebra.  Operator spaces are studied by examining their behaviour as modules over associated operator algebras.

Jakob Streipel

Jakob Sreipel‘s research is in analytic number theory, a branch of mathematics that uses analysis (read: calculus, but with proofs!) to solve problems about the integers, such as counting prime numbers. Jakob in particular uses spectral theory to answer questions about Maass forms and their L-functions. This admittedly seems to have very little to do […]

Jane Wang

Jane Wang‘s research interests are in geometry and dynamical systems. She primarily studies translation surfaces and dilation surfaces, geometric structures that have connections to mathematical billiards, Riemann surfaces, and algebraic geometry. She is interested in problems relating to the dynamics on these surfaces and their moduli spaces. Some of the problems that she studies draw […]

Gilbert Moss

Gil Moss‘s research is in algebraic number theory and representation theory. His area of focus is the Langlands program, which connects automorphic forms to Galois theory. He is particularly interested in the modular representation theory of reductive p-adic groups and the way congruences and deformations behave under the local Langlands correspondence. This often requires techniques […]
