Sean Droms joins us this year as a newest faculty member, having completed his PhD in mathematics from the University of Virginia. Sean introduces himself in his own words:
I grew up in the mountains of Virginia, outside of Harrisonburg. For my undergraduate degree in mathematics, I attended the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. I earned my doctorate at the Univeristy of Virginia, where I studied aspects 3- and 4-dimensional topology while getting involved with UVA’s Teaching Resource Center. I’m very excited to be joining the LVC community, which has been very welcoming and friendly. I’m particularly excited to be part of the mathematical sciences department. The enthusiasm the students and faculty have here is incredibly energizing. Off campus, I love to be outside, hiking, camping, or kayaking. I’m really looking forward to meeting and working with everyone in the upcoming school year and beyond!
