David Dumas
I am a professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My research interests include Teichmüller theory, geometric structures, representations of surface groups in Lie groups, hyperbolic geometry, and Kleinian groups.

Computer experiments and visualizations are an important component of my research. I use these tools to guide my theoretical work and to present my results.
