George W Hart
George W. Hart is now the Chief of Content at the Museum of Mathematics (momath.org), which is planning to open in New York City in 2012. He joined the museum in September 2010, after almost ten years as a research professor in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University, NY. He holds a B.S. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, both from MIT. He is the author of a linear algebra monograph,
(Springer Verlag, 1995), and a geometry text,
(coauthored with Henri Picciotto, Key Curriculum Press, 2001). Hart is also a sculptor and puzzle-designer, developing innovative ways to use computer technology in the design and fabrication of his artwork. His sculpture has been exhibited around the world and can be seen at georgehart.com. He is also very active in developing novel hands-on workshops as ways to communicate the richness and excitement of mathematics. Currently Hart is focusing on designing what he hopes will be the coolest museum anywhere.
