About Dr. Moorhouse

Eric Moorhouse joined the University of Wyoming faculty in 1989. He came to the University of Wyoming from the University of Oregon.

His mathematical interests include 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.
