Seven doctoral candidates successfully defended their dissertations and graduated from the Mathematics Ph.D. program in 2018.

“We’re very proud of these new Ph.Ds. They represent the largest graduating class of Ph.D. students in several decades,” says Dr. Todd Eisworth, Associate Professor of Chair of Mathematics at Ohio University.

“I’ve had faculty mention to me that the past few years have felt like a ‘Golden Age’ of graduate students. The energy and enthusiasm these students have brought to our department has been wonderful, and I look forward to seeing them continue to develop as scholars and teachers as they move on to the next stage of their careers,” he added.
