Biography:
Bradley McQuaig is a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. He earned both a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Mathematics from Auburn University. His dissertation research primarily focused on extending familiar notions from Abelian group theory to modules over arbitrary (non-commutative) rings. His continued research investigates similar problems spanning topics in abstract algebra, linear algebra, matrix theory, and homological algebra. Moreover, he is interested in the set-theoretical aspects of these problems. Several of his results are published, and he has presented his findings at various conferences.
Prior to starting at the University of West Florida in Fall 2019, Dr. McQuaig taught mathematics at Auburn University for seven years. During this time, he gained experience working with a diverse array of students from different backgrounds and with varying degrees of mathematical preparation. The classes he taught include algebra and trigonometry courses, all courses in the calculus sequence, and undergraduate and graduate-level linear algebra courses. His teaching style places an emphasis on facilitating learning communities where students are actively involved in the learning process and encouraged to discuss mathematics. He strives to create a classroom environment in which students feel safe to ask questions and explore different avenues to approach a problem
