Ben Prather's FSU math page
I am a graduate student at Florida State university researching analysis on the algebra of the split-octonions. I earned my B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, with an emphasis in control theory, from the University of Utah in 1998. I returned to the University of Utah to pursue a second B.S. in computer science, earning teaching and research assitantships.
Before completing this endeavor I returned home to Panama City Beach Florida to be closer to family. From 2006-2012 I was a mathematics learning manager at my alma mater, Gulf Coast State College. There I managed a tutoring lab and was an adjunct instructor for developmental mathematics.
I also had an opportunity to take classes with Dr. Wolfgang Heil at Florida State University's Panama City campus. This aquantance opened the door to my current situation.
