Chair and Associate Professor of Mathematics
After graduating from Wake Forest University, Matthew Rudd moved to Chicago, where he earned an M.S. at the University of Chicago, had a stint in the horn section of a soul band, and worked as a computer programmer. Unable to resist mathematics any longer, he returned to studying partial differential equations and completed a Ph.D. at the University of Utah. He came to Sewanee after stops at the Universities of Texas and Idaho, and he enjoys working with students in class and on research projects.
