PROFESSOR KEVIN MITCHELL received his Ph.D. in Mathematics at Brown University in 1980. His thesis, Folding and Crimpings of Algebraic Varieties, was in the area of Algebraic Geometry. Mitchell joined the faculty of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in the Fall of 1980. Current areas of interest are: hyperbolic tilings and applications of mathematics to environmental science. With departmental colleague David Belding, Mitchell co-authored the text Fundamentals of Analysis, which has been used in Mathematics 331: Foundation of Analysis.

Much of his recent work has been done in conjunction with members of the Department of Biology. This includes co-authoring a text entitled An Introduction to Biostatistics with colleague Thomas Glover which has been published by McGraw-Hill. He has co-authored several articles on topics ranging from "The Species-Area Relation" to "Measuring Stream Discharge" which have been published by the Consoritium for Mathematics and Its Applications.

Professor Mitchell retired from teaching in 2017.
