Within the bits and bytes lies great potential to understand our past and predict future events. And this potential is being realized. Organizations of all kinds are devoting their energies to combing the ever-growing stores of high-quality data.

Dr. Tim Chartier is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Davidson College. He holds a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and an M.S. in Computational Mathematics, both from Western Michigan University. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado Boulder.

Professor Chartier is a recipient of a national teaching award from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). He is the author of Math Bytes: Google Bombs, Chocolate-Covered Pi, and Other Cool Bits in Computing and coauthor (with Anne Greenbaum) of Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms. As a researcher, he has worked with both Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, and his research was recognized with an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.

Dr. Chartier is a member and past chairperson of the Advisory Council for the National Museum of Mathematics, and was named the first Math Ambassador of the Mathematical Association of America.
