About

Matthew Jura received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut in 2009.  He studies mathematical logic, particularly computability theory and reverse mathematics, mostly in the area of graph theory.  His Ph.D. dissertation was on the reverse mathematics of theorems involving a certain type of graph coloring.  He enjoys teaching all kinds of mathematics.
