Biographical Sketch
Peter Perry received his doctorate in Physics from Princeton University
in 1982. He held an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Courant Institute of
Mathematical
Sciences in 19811982, a Bantrell Fellowship in Mathematical
Physics at Caltech in 19821985,
and began a tenuretrack assistant
professorship at the University of Kentucky in the fall of 1985.
He was
tenured in 1988 and promoted to the rank of full professor in 1994. Perry
was awarded
a University Research Professorship in 19992000 and in 2010
was awarded the title of
College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished
Professor. Perry chaired the Mathematics Department from 2000
to 2004 and
directed the MathExcel program from 2007 to 2011. He is currently the
Director of Graduate Studies
in the Department of Mathematics.
