Brief Biography

Dr. Bell received his Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Florida under the direction of Alexander Dranishnikov. He was a VIGRE postdoc at Penn State and joined the UNCG faculty in 2005. His research studies coarse geometry, geometric topology, and geometric group theory. Since 2017 he has served as the Associate Dean of the Graduate School.
