 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, TelAviv 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 infinitedimensional
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 problemsolving 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 endoftheyear reception
following the May 2014 commencement exercises. Click
