Associate Professor of Mathematics
Office: Otto Miller 238
Education: BA, Westmont College, 1974; PhD, University of Minnesota, 1982. At SPU since 1982.
Dr. Johnson wrote his doctoral dissertation in the area of commutative ring theory. That said, knowing that he wanted to end up in a small college Math department he took a much broader than usual selection of courses.
Dr. Johnson has wide ranging interests within Mathematics. Since coming to SPU he has taught most of the courses offered by the Math department. He has mentored senior projects in Philosophy of Mathematics, History of Mathematics, Game Theory, Graph Theory, Projective Geometry, and Ring Theory.
