Matthias Beck, Research Director

Dr. Matthias Beck is an Associate Professor in Mathematics at San Francisco State University, where he arrived in 2004 after studies at the University of W├╝rzburg, SUNY Oneonta, and Temple University, and postdoctoral positions at SUNY Binghamton, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and the Max-Planck-Institute in Bonn. His research is situated in the intersection of combinatorics, geometry, and number theory; he is particularly fond of counting integer points in polyhedra and the application of these enumeration functions to various combinatorial and number-theoretic topics and problems. He (co-)authored two books and many research papers, more than a third of which feature student coauthors. He has mentored numerous research students at SF State, UC Berkeley, and UC Davis, directs the NSF-sponsored (CM)^2 GK-12 program at SF State, and is one of the codirectors of the San Francisco Math Circle.
