He likes algebra and has a kickass beard (or did...his facial hair changes frequently). He showed up in the 2008-2009 school year and was apparently hired in part to help Mudd, and the math department in particular, "confront the myriad issues surrounding gender inequity and underrepresentation as we work toward diversity." As a part of this effort he runs a seminar called SUMS (Seminar on Underrepresentation and the Mathematical Sciences) where he brings in people who have worked with these issues elsewhere to talk to us about their experiences. The schedule can be found at http://www.math.hmc.edu/~dk/sums/ if you are interested. Don't try and find his Instagram. Says "groovy" a lot.

"The moduli space of mathematical talent is not simple, connected, or ordered."
