Biography

Dr. Clinton CurryDr. Curry completed his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 2009, focusing on dynamical systems and topology with a minor in computer science.  His thesis topic was "Topological Models for Julia Sets."  He was named the Outstanding Ph.D. Student in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics at UAB, 2009, and received first prize in session, UAB Graduate Research Days, fall 2007 and fall 2009. He completed his undergraduate degree magna cum laude and with honors in mathematics. 

Before joining Huntingdon in 2011, Dr. Curry taught for Stony Brook University and served as a mentor for several undergraduate projects in mathematical biology and dynamical systems at UAB.
