Dr. Botts earned his PhD in Mathematics (Applied Track) from Ohio University. Prior to doctoral work, he earned an MS in Pure Mathematics from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and a BS in Mathematics from the same institution. He is a recipient of the Ohio University Graduate Assistant Outstanding Teaching Award, and has served as chair of the Graduate Student Senate Grant Committee. Dr. Botts has worked as a high school math teacher and with the California State Early Assessment Project, which promotes student success on college math entrance exams.
Dr. Botts is an applied mathematician with primary interests in numerical analysis focusing multivariate regression algorithms in high-dimensions with tensor products. Currently he is working on applications of these techniques to reverse engineering gene regulatory networks and predicting the properties of crystalline solids.
In his free time, Dr. Botts stays active. He enjoys playing volleyball, running and biking.
