  • This Spring 2016 semester, the Mathematics Department is very pleased to welcome two new mathematics professors to Brooklyn College:

    Prof. Rodrigo Treviņo received his PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2012. He spent time as a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University, Tel-Aviv University, and NYU before joining the department. His research area is dynamical systems and ergodic theory with some connections to geometry and mathematical physics.

    Prof. Stephen Preston received his PhD in Mathematics in 2002 from Stony Brook University under David G. Ebin, and a B.S. in mathematics and physics from Pennsylvania State University. He was a Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania and an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder until moving to New York to be closer to family. His research interests include partial differential equations and differential geometry, in particular the equations that arise as geodesics of Riemannian metrics in infinite-dimensional spaces. He served as the Graduate Director at the University of Colorado and has organized two international conferences. His research has been funded by both the National Science Foundation and the Simon Foundation.

  • The Putnam Club, a mathematical problem-solving club which may help students prepare for the Putnam competition will be meeting on Tuesdays, 12:30pm - 1:30pmpm, in Ingersoll 1149 during the Spring 2016 semester. The atmosphere of the club is informal and anyone is welcome to join as often (or rarely) as they please.

  • The Math Department celebrated the accomplishments of its graduating seniors, current undergraduate students, and graduate students at its end-of-the-year reception following the May 2014 commencement exercises. Click here to see the pics!
