Dr. Smyth earned his Ph. D. in mathematics in 2001 from Rutgers University, advised by Mike Saks. Afterwards, he held postdoctoral positions at the Institute for Advanced Study, Carnegie Mellon University, and MIT until joining UNCG in 2008. His research interests lie in discrete mathematics, including problems coming from combinatorial probability, theoretical computer science, discrete geometry, and combinatorial enumeration.
