About Timothy McNicholl

I have taught a wide range of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level.  I have used a variety of techniques including lecture, seminar, and various versions of the discovery method. I choose the method I use for a class based on the material and the students in the class.  I also try to take into account the latest educational research.  I have been experimenting with clickers in my large lecture classes.

I was trained as a logician with an emphasis in computability theory.  Currently I am interested in research projects that mix elements from the theory of computation and analysis or topology. Some of these have lead to pure complex analysis results of independent interest.  I enjoy working with mathematicians from several different areas, and I look forward to forming more such collaborations in the future.
