David Dumas
I am an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

My research interests include real and complex projective structures on surfaces, Teichmüller theory, hyperbolic geometry, and Kleinian groups.

I often integrate computer experiments and computer visualization into my research, and I develop open-source software to help others do the same.
