Assistant Professor Matthew Stamps received his BSc from Grand Valley State University (GVSU) and PhD from the University of California, Davis (UCD) in the United States. Before joining Yale-NUS College, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University in Finland and research fellow at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden. His work has been recognised by an American National Science Foundation International Research Fellowship, the Yueh-Jing Lin Scholarship in Mathematics at UCD, and the Glen A Niemeyer Outstanding Student Award at GVSU. Dr Stamps has participated in a number of intercultural engagement and mathematics outreach initiatives. He believes that mathematics plays an important role in a wide array of issues related to social justice and human flourishing, and that diversity and inclusion are fundamental components of an empowering and transformative mathematics education.
Asst Prof Stamps specialises in algebraic, geometric, and topological methods in combinatorics and applied mathematics. He has published articles in journals such as Algebra and Number Theory and the Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics, and has co-organised several conferences and seminars on algebraic and topological combinatorics.
