Keynote Speaker

Kevin Hutson has always been interested in applying mathematics to the real world. After earning a masters degree, he worked for a manufacturing company as an operations research analyst trying to help them build a new and efficient manufacturing plant and warehouse. After the plant's successful completion, Dr. Hutson gave up this industrial career to pursue mathematics because he wanted to investigate problems on a deeper level and pursue teaching. However, Dr. Hutson never quite lost the itch to apply his work to a real-world setting and to show students the applications of what they are learning. So, today, whether it's in his classes, research, or consulting projects, Dr. Hutson tries to involve students not only in theoretical study or mathematics but also in how it is used in the real world.
