    Hossein's Bio

    Hossein Shahmohamad received his PhD from University of Pittsburgh in 2000. His initial area of research was nowhere zero flows and chromatic polynomials. In the past 22 years at RIT, he has served as Director of Graduate Programs, won numerous awards, was elected the chair of RIT Academic Senate, served as SEAWAY chair, and yet has not lost his passion for teaching and working with students. He is an avid collector of cool puzzles and has published a book of puzzles in Farsi. He has a difficult time not running into some of his 4000 former students who are all scattered in New York State.

    Daniel M.'s Bio

    Dan received his PhD from Boston University studying Complex Dynamics and he currently serves as the Rutherford Professor of Mathematics at St. Lawrence University. His current research includes the dynamics of rational functions (with a particular interest in Sierpinski curve Julia sets and Julia sets related to the geometric action of circle inversion), text mining/stylometry, popular culture uses of mathematics in early 20th century pulp fiction, and mathematics pedagogy. Among other work, he has performed stylometric analyses of Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories and their various pastiches and written about H. P. Lovecraft’s use of non-Euclidean geometry for an invited paper in Lovecraft Annual. In his non-professional time, Dan enjoys spending time with his amazing spouse and their four cats, playing Dungeons & Dragons, running, and running while thinking about playing Dungeons & Dragons.
