Biography - dr. Eugene Fiorini
Dr. Eugene Fiorini is the Turman Koehler Professor of Mathematics at Muhlenburg College. Prior to his appointment at Muhlenberg College, he was Associate Director for the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University. He earned an M.S. (1989) and Ph.D. (1993) from the University of Delaware in Extremal Graph Theory, as well as completing the graduate work for an M.S. in mathematics education, and holds a master’s in Statistics from Temple University. For fourteen years he was a member of the Shippensburg University Mathematics Department where he also served as Chair of the University Scholarship Program, Associate Dean and Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition to publications in mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education, Dr. Fiorini is one of several authors of a new biomathematics textbook appearing last spring and is an assistant editor for the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. Dr. Fiorini has also been recognized for his work with Research Experiences for Undergraduates
(REU) programs at Muhlenberg College and DIMACS. He has been involved with several projects at the intersection of research and education. These projects include, the US-African Biomathematics Initiative, the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013-Plus project (MPE2013+), development of the SAMSI (Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute) Statistical Forensics Special Program, and the Integrating Mathematics and Biology (IMB) project. As part of these projects he has co-authored several modules including Smart Driving: Reducing Pollution by “Greenest” Path, The Neuroscience of Pain and CrIME: Criminal Investigation through Mathematical Examination. Dr. Fiorini has also recognized for developing a Rutgers University Honors Program interactive, interdisciplinary seminar on mathematical forensics.
