Who I am

Kevin Iga is an associate professor in mathematics at Pepperdine University, a four-year liberal arts college in Malibu, California, dedicated to educating our youth and preparing them for life by giving them a firm foundation in the Christian faith.

I was born on October 19, 1970, in Honolulu, Hawaii , went to high school at Moanalua High School from 1984-1988, got my bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Physics at MIT in 1992 and received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Stanford University in 1998.

My job involves teaching roughly 12 hours per week, which involves three courses each semester, and research. The courses I am currently teaching are listed in my home page. My research is an area of topology which investigates four-dimensional manifolds using Seiberg-Witten equations and other related methods.

Other research interests include differential geometry, Morse theory, Supersymmetry, and (on an unrelated note) Biblical textual criticism. But generally I work on any math problem that sounds fun that comes my way.

I am involved in Malibu Presbyterian Church , and as an alumnus, Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity.
