American Mathematical Society Inaugural Fellows

In November 2012, The American Mathematical Society honored 1119 mathematicians in their first class of Fellows. Three FSU math department professors John Bryant, Robert Gilmer, and DeWitt Sumners numbered among them. Looking back on their long careers and substantial contributions to the field, they've been kind enough to offer their reflections and advice on the field of mathematics, at FSU and beyond.


Alumni Profile: Caroline Maher-Boulis, Associate Professor at Lee University

Caroline Maher-Boulis got her Ph.D. in Mathematics at Florida State University in Spring 2004, under the direction of Professor Wolfgang Heil. Her first job was as Assistant Professor at Lee University, where she continues today as an Associate Professor.


Faculty Profile: Phil Bowers, Professor of Mathematics

After serving as Associate Chair from August 1999 to August 2005, and as Chair from August 2005 to August 2012, Dr. Phil Bowers said he has a new appreciation for the work administrators do. Although he looks forward to getting back to his research and writing, his years spent as Chair were valuable, both to him and to the department. Even as he faced challenges such as budget concerns, Bowers was able to see many of his goals realized during his two terms as Chair.
