Featured Speaker bio: Adam Weyhaupt grew up in the St. Louis area received bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and computer science from Eastern Illinois University. After finishing a Ph.D. in mathematics from Indiana University in 2006, he began his career at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, where he is now an associate professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. His academic interests are varied and include the interaction of geometry and topology in minimal surfaces (mathematical models of soap bubbles and films) and in the interaction of mathematics and social choice theory. In his spare time, he enjoys being outdoors (camping, hiking, and boating) with his wife and two sons.
