My name is Timothy Goldberg. I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics in the Donald and Helen Schort School of Mathematics and Computing Sciences at Lenoir–Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina, where I have been teaching since August 2010.
I earned my doctoral degree in mathematics in 2010 from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. My advisor was Reyer Sjamaar, and my thesis is titled Hamiltonian Actions in Integral Kähler and Generalized Complex Geometry.
Before that, I attended Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, from which I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics. My advisor was Ethan Bloch, and my senior project is titled Combinatorial Laplacians of Simplicial Complexes.
My mathematical interests are primarily in geometry. The field of study for my doctoral research was differential geometry – specifically, Hamiltonian actions in symplectic geometry and complex generalized geometry. My recent research projects have primarily been motivated by work with students, although most of it still involves geometric ideas – (see the Student Research tab above).
