Scott D. Pauls

Academic Appointments
  • Professor of Mathematics

  • Cheheyl Professor and Director, Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning

  • Chair, Department of Mathematics

Professor Pauls' research in mathematics focuses on building and analyzing network models for social, biological, and physical systems.  In his theoretical work, he aims to find network theoretic signatures for outcomes of dynamical processes.  Recently, he has been able to apply these techniques to systems in political science, economics, neuroscience, and environmental science.
