Personal Profile of Dr. Dagan Joshua Karp


Dagan Karp is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College. He arrived at HMC in the Fall of 2008 from Department of Mathematics at UC Berkeley where he was first an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow, and later an NSF RTG Visiting Assistant Professor. Prior to Berkeley, he received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of British Columbia. He received both his MSc in Mathematics and BS double major in Mathematics and Physics from Tulane University.

His research is centered in algebraic geometry and Gromov-Witten theory. The latter is an exciting subject intersecting such areas as theoretical physics, enumerative geometry, combinatorics and representation theory.

His interests also include work to broaden participation in the mathematical sciences. For example, he launched the Seminar on Underrepresentation and the Mathematical Sciences (SUMS) at HMC, is an Undergraduate Mentor in the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences, and is an active SACNAS member. His SACNAS experience includes co-organizing many components of SACNAS National Conferences over the years, and serving on the SACNAS National Mathematics Task Force.
