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.
Asst Prof Stamps was a residential fellow of Elm College during the Academic Year 2019/2020. He has participated in a variety of intercultural engagement and mathematics outreach initiatives throughout his career, including InterGroup Dialogue and the Canada/USA Mathcamp. 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 studies algebraic, geometric, and topological methods in combinatorics and applied mathematics. He is particularly interested in questions that explore how well discrete objects (such as networks and polyhedra) and continuous objects (such as curves and surfaces) model one another, and how answers to such questions can be used for applications in computer science and biology.
