|This past summer, Matthew Carroll joined our computer staff as Associate Information Processing Consultant. Matt comes to us by way of UW-Milwaukee where he was Software Support Specialist - Linux/Unix Administrator since 1998. He earned a BS degree from the School of Engineering in Computer Science (computer science program) of UW-Milwaukee. At Milwaukee, Matt supported and maintained the campus-wide Unix servers and is very familiar with the Debian Linux operating system. While Senior Information Processing Consultant, Yvonne Nagel, was in Barcelona during the fall semester 2001, Matt was in charge keeping our computer system running smoothly.|

Beginning with the fall semester in 2001, David Camacho has assumed the position of Director of the Mathematics Tutorial Program, succeeding its long-time director Claire Rider. David received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in engineering from the National Autonoma University of Mexico, and a PhD in Civil Engineering (Structures) from the University of Minnesota in 1993. He comes to us with a wealth of experience.
David worked at the University of Minnesota in many capacities after getting his PhD. He worked with their TRIO Program's Student Support Service, McNair Scholars, and Upward Bound Math & Science. He taught mathematics in the Minnesota's General College, lectured in the Department of Civil Engineering, and taught calculus and physics in a summer enrichment program of the College of Biological Science and Health Sciences. While in Minnesota he also taught mathematics courses at the Metropolitan State University.
Most recently, Dr. Camacho was director of the Upward Bound Math & Science TRIO Program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. This is a program targeting low-income, first-generation students who attend Milwaukee public high schools, with the goal of encouraging them to pursue a math or science related major in college. At Milwaukee he also taught in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences.
Before coming to the United States, David worked in research, design, and development with Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission and Mexicana de Cobre.
In addition to directing our tutorial program, David also teaches at least one mathematics course a year.
