Jonathan Schneider

Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science

Dr. Jonathan Schneider began teaching college mathematics in 2006 while a graduate student at the University of Illinois Chicago. His area of research is knot theory (the mathematical description and classification of knots, as one would tie with string) with particular focus in higher-dimensional knot analogs.

He also enjoys writing about higher-dimensional solid geometry, the topology of origami and the combinatorics of the card game SET— all topics accessible to the imaginative undergraduate.
