I have been a member of the Belmont mathematics and computer science faculty since 2003. I have a B.A. in mathematics and physics (with computer science and philosophy minors) from Wartburg College (IA) and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley. My dissertation research is in the field of hyperbolic dynamical systems. Additionally, I am actively involved in curricular development that focuses on quantitative literacy and on issues that lie in the intersection of mathematics and social justice.
I teach a wide variety of courses here at Belmont, ranging from one of our BELL Core courses (Mathematical Inquiry) all the way through calculus to our upper-division proof-intensive courses. I'm also the co-advisor of our math and computer science student organization, the joint Student Chapters of the Mathematical Association of America and the Association for Computing Machinery.
Outside of school I enjoy singing in the choir at Belmont United Methodist Church, running (all distances, from 5K to marathon), and reading, when I have the time. I chose to study mathematics because I find it fun and fascinating, so I also have fun by keeping up with my discipline and solving puzzles and riddles of all kinds.
I would like to contact Dr. Miller.
