Geremías Polanco Encarnación
Teaching at Amherst College from Fall 2019-Spring 2022.

Geremías Polanco Encarnación, assistant professor of mathematics, holds a Ph.D. in mathematics and an M.S. in actuarial science. Prior to Hampshire, he was a visiting assistant professor at Illinois Wesleyan University, and is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

His passion is to understand and communicate mathematics. His primary interest is analytic number theory, but this has led him also into the kindred area of algebraic combinatorics. The topics he is most involved with so far are related to Sturmian and Beatty sequences, uniform distribution, spectra in general, continued fractions, combinatorial sequences, and L-functions. He is interested in expanding his research work to other areas of mathematics and to interdisciplinary collaborative research.
