## About me

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).
