I’m a mathematician at Stanford University in California. I’m a co-founder and Executive Director of Stanford’s H-STAR institute, a co-founder of the Stanford Media X research network, and a Senior Researcher at CSLI.
I’m a World Economic Forum Fellow and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
My current research is focused on the use of different media to teach and communicate mathematics to diverse audiences, with a particular focus of late on video games. I also work on the design of information/reasoning systems for intelligence analysis. My other research interests include: theory of information, models of reasoning, applications of mathematical techniques in the study of communication, and mathematical cognition.
I’ve written 32 books and over 80 published research articles. I’m a recipient of the Pythagoras Prize, the Peano Prize, the Carl Sagan Award, and the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics Communications Award. In 2003, I was recognized by the California State Assembly for my “innovative work and longtime service in the field of mathematics and its relation to logic and linguistics.”
And, last but by no means least, I’m “the Math Guy” on National Public Radio.
