Before arriving at Davidson in 2002, Associate Professor Michael Mossinghoff taught mathematics and computer science in the Program in Computing at UCLA. He has a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, an M.S. in computer science from Stanford University, and a B.S. in mathematics from Texas A & M University. Professor Mossinghoff studies analytic problems in number theory and combinatorics, often using methods that involve some substantial computations. He is an Associate Editor of Mathematics of Computation, a research journal published by the American Mathematical Society. In 2007, the Mathematical Association of America honored Professor Mossinghoff with the Lester R. Ford Award for expository excellence in The American Mathematical Monthly. His courses have enhanced the department's offerings in computer science, and he administers the Computer Science Concentration.
