David Dumas
I am a professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My research concerns the geometry of low-dimensional manifolds, the deformation spaces of locally homogeneous geometric structures on such manifolds, and the use of analytic techniques in these areas.

Computer experiments and visualizations are an important component of my research.

I am on sabbatical for the academic year 2019-2020. In Fall 2019 I am co-organizing the semester program Illustrating Mathematics at ICERM.

In Preparation

Mathematical Visualization

Some of my visualization work can be found here. My recent work if often posted to my YouTube channel or Github, or to the YouTube channel of the Mathematical Computing Laboratory.

Lecture videos

Software development


Upcoming conferences and other events that I am helping to organize:



I am a co-founder and administrator of the Mathematical Computing Laboratory, an organization supporting undergraduate research in mathematics at UIC.



I founded and co-organize the yearly Undergraduate Mathematics Symposium at UIC.
