Dr. Benjamin Kennedy, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Gettysburg College
We turn to mathematician Dr. Benjamin Kennedy, Associate Professor at Gettysburg College, to help us understand some of the history behind math and to talk about dynamical systems—an area of his expertise. Dr. Kennedy earned his Ph.D at Rutgers University and his BA at Swarthmore College. He has published in the "Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics", "Differential and Integral Equations", Electronic Journal of Qualitative Theory of Differential Equations", "Journal of Dynamics and Differential Equations", and "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems".
Dr. Kennedy's passion outside of math is music; he plays jazz piano and has written, performed, and recorded much of his own music He is married to Dr. Sonya Del Tredici, a physician, and has two children who often reject, but then grudgingly concede to their father's logic.
