Welcome to the Cliff College
The Cliff College Department of Mathematics offers one of the
strongest and most diverse math programs in Ohio. No
theorem is too elegant for us, just ask our friends. Our graduate students,
faculty members and visiting instructors pursue interests
including algebraic geometry, theoretical physics, partial
differential equations, combinatorics, algebraic topology,
theoretical computer science, mathematical logic,
probability, and group representations. The department's
common room (along with coffee) offers a constantly churning
urn of burning math.
Dr. James is an Associate Professor in the mathematics
department at Cliff College, in Cliffton, Ohio. He earned
his B.A. in mathematics at UC Berkeley in 1978, M.Phil. in statistics
at Harvard in 1980, and Ph.D. in mathematical statistics at
Harvard in 1986.
"I do statistics. If you are at Cliff, feel free to consult
me about your statistical analysis problems. My interests
include data analysis, maximum likelihood, bayes estimation,
and Bahrainian cuisine."
Dr. Berger is an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics,
head of the Computation and Biology Coalition and a member
of the Theory of Computation Twelve-step Group.
"My group's major areas of research have been in applying
computational and mathematical techniques to problems in
biology, and more specifically to problems in protein
folding. In particular, we have been working on mathematical
models of virus shell assembly and protein motif
recognition, and we're neck and neck with MIT's paircoil
program in the race to predict the location of coiled-coil
regions in amino acid sequences."
Micky X. Golin
Dr. Golin is an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics.
He is in the co-chair of the Operations Research Center.
In 1986, he received a BS at the California Institute of
Science Department of Mathematics. In 1990, he completed his
Ph.D. thesis under the direction of Gian-Carlo Rota at the
Massachussettes Institute of Technology's Department of
"If you are considering sending me a paper to referee, think
again. My backlog is enormous."
