Sean Nixon holds his PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado. From there he worked at the University of Vermont as a postdoc funded through the Air Force and NSF doing fundamental research into nonlinear optics. Currently he's Visiting Assistant Professor at SUNY Geneseo.
Research interests include Nonlinear Waves, Optics, Solitons, Asymptotic Analysis and Perturbation Theory, Parity-Time Symmetry, and Game Theory.
