Dana C. Ernst
Dana Ernst is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Northern Arizona University. He earned his PhD in mathematics from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2008. His primary research interests are in the interplay between combinatorics and algebraic structures. Dana's interests also include the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). In particular, he is passionate about inquiry-based learning (IBL) as an approach to teaching/exploring mathematics. Dana is currently a Special Projects Coordinator for the Academy of Inquiry-Based Learning and a mentor for several new IBL practitioners. Moreover, he actively gives talks and organizes workshops on the benefits of IBL as well as the nuts and bolts of how to implement this approach in the mathematics classroom. Dana is also an avid cyclist and rock climber and enjoys drinking copious amounts of coffee.
