Edray Herber Goins, Ph.D. L.H.D.

I am a Professor of Mathematics at Pomona College; previously I was a Professor at Purdue University. Here's my explanation of why I left Purdue after 14 years. You can read about my life in detail at the MacTutor History of Mathematics archive.

I've been working on properties of Selmer groups for elliptic curves using class groups of number fields, as well as properties of Dessins d'Enfants. I run an REU which focuses on understanding properties of Belyi maps, and I maintain a blog about Dessins d'Enfants. I am also working on a history project for African Americans in the mathematical sciences; I am the lead for updating the MAD Pages. I am always looking for students to assist with projects!
