Dr. Brian Collier Joins UCR Math Department in Fall 2020


Brian Collier, UCR Math

Before joining UCR, Dr. Collier was an NSF post-doctoral fellow at the University of Maryland.

Dr. Brian Collier's research focuses on the interplay of different areas of math such as algebraic geometry, dynamical systems, gauge theory, Lie theory, and geometric group theory. In particular, he uses Higgs bundles and Nonabelian Hodge theory to study certain generalizations of hyperbolic geometry called Anosov representations and higher Teichmüller theory.

When learning calculus at college level, students often encounter difficulties overcoming word problems, or extracting mathematics from the context of a certain subject. The instructors also encounter time limitations to teaching with sufficient depth, coverage and illustrations.

The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing supplementary instructional materials. It produces a collection of microtutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to overcome such difficulties and pressures, with the help of online learning. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice.  The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired.

Math Alliance
Math Alliance: Providing educational success to underrepresented and first-generation students is an important part of UCR's mission.
The National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences - Math Alliance - is a community of math sciences faculty and students with the following goals:
  • To increase the number of doctoral degrees in the mathematical sciences among groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in those fields.
  • To improve placement of students from these groups in doctoral programs in disciplines that recruit undergraduate mathematics majors.
  • To increase the number of Phds from these groups who enter the professoriate in the mathematical sciences as well as other appropriate professions.
  • To increase funded research collaborations among faculty members at the universities with mathematical sciences doctoral programs and faculty members at colleges and universities focused on undergraduate students.
  • To foster the growth of a community of mathematical scientists that promotes a diverse workforce.

If you are interested in becoming a Math Alliance Scholar, please feel free to contact Dr. Fred Wilhelm. The benefits include access to Math Alliances Facilitated Graduate Applications Process and possible funding to go the the Alliance's Field of Dreams conference.


Colloquium: The Quasiconformal Geometry of Fractals
November 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Interdisciplinary Center for Quantitative Modeling in Biology Mario Bonk, UCLA Abstract: Many questions in analysis and geometry lead to  problems of quasiconformal geometry on non-smooth or fractal spaces.  For example, there is a close relation of this subject to the problem of characterizing fundamental groups of hyperbolic 3…
Colloquium: Modeling cell migration: from 2D to 3D

Zoom Meeting
Alex Mogilner, Courant Institute, New York University Cell migration is a fundamentally important phenomenonunderlying wound healing, tissue development, immune responseand cancer metastasis. Understanding basic physics of thecell migration presented a great challenge until, in the lastthree decades, a combination of biological,…
