About the Authors

Eugene Boman earned his BA from Reed College in 1984 and his Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut in 1993. He has been teaching and researching mathematics at the Pennsylvania State University since 1995 and feels very strongly that the best and most interesting work he has done has always been his work with undergraduate students. He is a recipient of the 2008 MAA Allendoerfer Award (with student Derek Seiple and colleague Richard Brazier) for the paper "Mom! There’s an Astroid in my Closet!"

Siddharth Dahiya is originally from the town of Rohtak near the Indian capital city of New Delhi. He earned BAs in Computer Science and Mathematics from Penn State Harrisburg. He is currently completing his MA in Computer Science, also from Penn State Harrisburg. After graduating, he will be joining Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, Washington, as a Software Engineer.

Tyler Brown is originally from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. He studied Mathematics and Computer Science at Penn State Harrisburg earning a BS in both fields in May 2014. Currently he is enrolled as a PhD student in Iowa State University's Pure Mathematics Program. After graduating, he hopes to find a place in academia as a lecturer or postdoctoral fellow following his passion for teaching and research.

Alexandra Milbrand grew up in the suburbs of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Staying close to home, she graduated with her BS in Mathematics from Penn State's Harrisburg campus. She now studies at Florida Atlantic University, working towards her Ph.D. in Mathematics. Once completed, she wishes to teach mathematics at the collegiate level.

Joseph L Roberge, Jr. is originally from Rome, New York. He graduated Valedictorian from Dauphin County Technical School, majoring in Electronics Technology. In 2012, he graduated from Penn State's Harrisburg Campus with a BS in Computer Science. He is presently completing his MS in Computer Science, also from Penn State, Harrisburg. He currently works in Information Technology for the Pennsylvania State Police. After graduation, he hopes to continue his pursuit of lifelong learning and fully invest himself in the world of computer technology and security.

Mary Boman is originally from the town of DuBois, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Hershey High School in 2013 and expects to receive her BA in Computer Science from Bryn Mawr College in 2017. In the meantime she has applied for summer internships for the upcoming summer of 2015.
