Jason Rosenhouse A Tribute to Raymond Smullyan 03 23 14

Jason Rosenhouse is an American author and professor of mathematics at James Madison University, where he was originally appointed an assistant professor in 2003. He became a full professor in 2014. His research focuses on algebraic graph theory, as well as analytic number theory. He currently runs the blog Evolution Blog at National Geographic's ScienceBlogs, where he frequently criticizes creationism, has contributed to the pro-evolution blog The Panda's Thumb, and has also contributed to the Huffington Post about topics such as the Higgs boson, in addition to creationism.

Rosenhouse has a bachelor's degree from Brown University in mathematics (1995), as well as an M.A. (1997) and a PhD in mathematics (2000), both from Dartmouth College. His PhD thesis was entitled "Isoperimetric numbers of certain Cayley graphs associated to PSL (2, [zeta subscript n])".


In 2000, Rosenhouse accepted a position at Kansas State University's mathematics department, at a time when the state school board was embroiled in a dispute over teaching creationism in schools. The school board's elimination of evolution from science textbooks introduced him to the creationist community, and he says that his time spent with them has convinced him that "the task of reconciling science with faith is far more difficult than is sometimes pretended."
