Kevin Hartshorn has been at the college since 2004. His areas of interest include low-dimensional topology and geometry. In addition to the standard battery of calculus courses, he has taught a broad range of upper-level courses, including higher geometry, real analysis, and a special topics course on knot theory. He has also been involved in courses reaching out to non-mathematics students, including Mathematics for Design, freshman composition, and Ethnomathematics. He is currently advisor for the campus Math Society and has recently advised students in SOAR research projects. Dr. Hartshorn also leads a regular "Pizza and Puzzles" activity, that brings people together to solve interesting mathematical problems.
