I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The College of New Jersey.
I joined TCNJ in 1996 and have greatly enjoyed my time here. My math interests are primarily in number theory, algebra, and representation theory, and I have also worked in computational mathematics, mathematical biology, and discrete mathematics.
As with poetry, literature, and philosophy, I believe a knowledge of mathematics, especially number theory and quadratic reciprocity, improves the quality of one’s life. As a professor, I try to convey the beauty of mathematics while teaching critical thinking skills that will serve students well throughout their lives.
I encourage you to contact me by email at hagedorn (insert @) tcnj.edu. As a conversation starter, I enjoy wordplay and origami, and my favorite number is 1729. What is yours?
