Brian Simanek

Assistant Professor
Department of Mathematics
Baylor University
United States of America


Dr. Simanek joined the Baylor faculty in 2015. He grew up in Pittsburgh, PA before attending Williams College, where he met his wife Becca. As a graduate student at Caltech, he began research into the spectral theory of orthogonal polynomials, but has since branched into other areas of analysis, such as potential theory. Aside from mathematics, he enjoys outdoor adventures like swimming, biking, and camping, and following sports of all kinds. His research interest includes Brian Simanek’s research interests include orthogonal polynomials, potential theory, and spectral theory. He had no. of publications in many national and international journals.
