I joined the Belmont faculty in 1997 teaching courses in graph theory, discrete mathematics, statistics and more recently mathematical inquiry and an introduction to computer science. My educational background is varied having a B.A. in religion from Samford University followed by graduate studies in theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. A love for teaching led me back to mathematics in which I have my M.S. from Georgia State University and Ph.D. from Emory University. I taught three years at Wake Forest University before coming to the Mathematics and Computer Science department at Belmont.
Among my favorite pastimes is working with students and other faculty, learning together through research projects (and other diversions). Although my primary expertise is in graph theory, I have a great interest in projects that bring together multiple disciplines (mathematics, computer science and biology ... among others).
When I'm not at Belmont, life revolves around my family. A busy schedule with two sons in college, two dogs, church and family activities keeps life exciting for my wife and me.
I would like to contact Dr. Acree.
