Dr. Diego Penta

Diego Penta joins the department as an Assistant Professor (Continuing Track).  Dr. Penta received his MS in Mathematics from Rutgers University in 2010 and his PhD, also in Mathematics, from SUNY-Binghamton in 2016.  His research, in Kac-Moody Lie algebras and their representations, resulted in two papers in the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical and one in the  Journal of Combinatorics and Number Theory.  Following his doctoral studies, Dr. Penta was a Lecturer at The Ohio State University and a visiting researcher at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  

Before "seeing the light" and deciding to pursue mathematics, Dr. Penta earned a BS in Materials Science and Engineering in 1996, after which he worked in industry for nine years.

Dr. Penta's professional interests lie in teaching introductory and intermediate level collegiate mathematics, and particularly in the use of class-based discussion and other active learning techniques.  He joins the Mathematical Sciences Learning Laboratory (MSLL) team, which implements such strategies in key introductory courses.
