7FacultyDanielDalyPh.D.MathematicsChairperson and Professorddaly@semo.edu573-651-2164Johnson Hall 201My goal is to show my students that mathematics is not only useful, but is also extremely beautiful, creative and a lot of fun.What area do you teach?Precalculus, Calculus, Foundations of Mathematics, Modern Algebra, Mathematical Programming, Mathematical Problem Solving, CombinatoricsEducation/Degree(s)Ph.D., 2009, University of Denver, Mathematics and Computer Science. M.S., 2005, University of Denver, Mathematics B.S., 2002, University of Denver, Major: Computer Science, Minors: Mathematics, FrenchAbout Me and My Research:I am generally interested in all areas of algebra and combinatorics. My main focus is currently on enumerative and algebraic combinatorics and specifically on permutation patterns and Coxeter groups. Other interests of mine include nonassociative algebra (loops and quasigroups), and other group-like objects such as semigroups and Hopf algebras.I completed my Ph.D. in June 2009 from the University of Denver under the supervision of Prof. Petr Vojtechovsky.Your philosophy of teaching:I believe in having an interactive classroom. Yes, I lecture some, but I also want my students to dig deep and solve problems in class and out. My goal is to show my students that mathematics is not only useful, but is also extremely beautiful, creative and a lot of fun.Why did you decide to teach?I originally went to school to study computer science and thought I wanted to be a programmer, but I kept taking math classes too. Eventually, I took my first course in abstract algebra and I was just hooked by mathematics. After thinking about it, I decided I didn't want to be a programmer, but wanted to show all of the beautiful mathematics that I was discovering to other people. I love teaching and couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.Credentials/career path After I graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Denver, I was hired by Southeast and have worked here ever since. I started at Southeast in fall 2009, was named the Mathematics Graduate Program Coordinator in fall 2010, earned tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2014 and was named interim chairperson of the Department of Mathematics in January 2018.Professional Highlight2009-2010 Project NExT fellow of the Mathematical Association of America.Regular judge for the Undergraduate Research Poster Session at the AMS/MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings every January.Award/Honor/Recognition Member of Phi Beta KappaOrganization with which you are involved Mathematical Association of America (MAA) American Mathematical Society (AMS)Most Recent/Notable Published WorkPattern Avoidance in the Rook Monoid with L.

University of Wyoming (2005) B.S. University of Wyoming (2003)Your philosophy of teaching:While some views on teaching and learning mathematics may be debatable, one proven method for success is the notion of "practice makes perfect." Repetition of the problems, concepts, and solutions is indispensable. As a result, my main goal for teaching mathematics is to ensure that students gain the adequate knowledge that allows them to individually practice respective mathematical concepts.Why did you decide to teach?It is very rewarding to share the breadth of mathematical knowledge that I have compiled throughout my career. In addition, I have found that teaching a variety of mathematics courses keeps a variety of useful topics in the forefront of my mind.Credentials/career path Broadly spoken, my research focuses on numerical solutions to differential equations and statistical analysis. I completed a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Wyoming in 2010, and subsequently held post-doctoral positions at The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, and Colorado State University. I have compiled more than 20 peer-reviewed journal publications and a book chapter, and have presented my work at institutes such as The University of California at Berkeley, Oberwolfach (Germany), and Auburn University.Professional Highlight2013 Oberwolfach Junior FellowshipAward/Honor/Recognition 2011 Outstanding Dissertation AwardOrganization with which you are involved American Mathematical SocietyMost Recent/Notable Published WorkM.
