Tyler Markkanen is a mathematician and teacher. His research is in mathematical logic, with a special interest in computability theory and computable model theory. For fun, he likes to sing, perform magic tricks, and play games. After graduate school, Markkanen taught as a tenure-track assistant professor of mathematics at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in Terre Haute, Ind. From the fall of 2011 to the spring of 2014, he was a visiting assistant professor of mathematics at Manhattan College in Riverdale, N.Y. He began his work at Springfield College in fall 2014, and says he is loving every minute of it!
