Title: Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Teaching Focus: Mathematics
Education: PhD, University of Missouri-Columbia
Dr. Daniel Kline enjoys sharing the beauty and joy of mathematics with his students. He teaches a wide variety of mathematics courses and is heavily involved with the mathematics club. His research interests lie primarily in the representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras viewed within the framework of geometric invariant theory.
During his graduate career, Daniel was the recipient of multiple teaching awards, the Qualifying Exam Performance Award, and the James A. Huckaba Algebra Award. His dissertation (On Locally Semi-Simple Quiver Representations, 2016) solved a long-standing conjecture posed in 1986 by Victor Kac.
Daniel is a national Project NExT Fellow and was an organizer for the sixth and seventh Conference on Geometric Methods in Representation Theory, funded by the National Science Foundation. He currently serves on the Executive Council for the MAA Missouri Section. When not doing math, he can usually be found roaming the Ozark hills and hollows with his family.
