About Dr. Moorhouse

Eric Moorhouse majored in physics, statistics and mathematics at the University of Toronto, and completed his PhD in mathematics there in 1987, specializing in finite geometry.  Since then his mathematical interests have included projective geometry, codes and designs, non-associative structures, algebraic combinatorics, and information theory.  He tries to use a variety of tools, both experimental (practical programming with computers) and theoretical (methods from group theory, algebraic geometry, number theory and mathematical logic).  He loves teaching at all levels of the mathematics curriculum, both graduate and undergraduate.
