Mike Pierce

I’m now an instructor at Colorado Mesa University.

I am a seventh-year PhD candidate in the Math Department at UC Riverside. I’m working with Professor Jacob Greenstein studying quiver representations and quantum groups from the perspective of the Hall algebras associated to them. Also at UC Riverside I’ve co-organized the Math Connections Conference, and I was the secretary of the Math Department Grad Student Association. I've been the instructor for the summer Advanced Mathematics Program in Algebra for undergraduate math majors and the Graduate Algebra Preparatory Seminar for math graduate students studying for their qualifying exam. And I've led research projects for undergraduates studying quantum calculus and studying persistent homology.

Before coming to Riverside, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Math Education at CSU Chico, where I did research in spatial graph theory with Professor Thomas Mattman.
