Jerry Martin, associate professor of mathematics, was recognized by the Department of Mathematics for his outstanding teaching by presenting him with two awards.  Martin received the 2013 Morrison Foundation Teaching Award and the 2013 G. Baley Price Award for Excellence in Teaching. 

The Morrison award was established in 2008 by the Don and Pat Morrison Foundation to recognize outstanding teaching in mathematics.  The department selects a recipient each year in recognition of exemplary teaching and an ongoing active research program.  The Price award was established in 1970 and the recipient is elected by the mathematics graduate students.

Martin came to KU in 2005 and became an associate professor in 2005.  His research interests are combinatorics, algebraic geometry, discrete geometry and computational commutative algebra.  His research is supported by a National Security Agency Young Investigators grant and a Simons Foundation Collaboration grant. He previously received the ING Excellence in Teaching Award (2011) from KU.
