James Donally
Assistant Professor of Mathematics

PhD, Oregon State University; MS, University of Washington; BA, Reed College

Dr Donally served as Chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences Committee for Lectures to Anchorage Schools and has tutored local engineers for the engineer-in-training examinations. He has also been a member of the American Physical Society and the Mathematical Association of America. Dr Donally concentrated his research on the mathematics of relativity theory and was the recipient of a grant from the physics department of the University of Arizona for a lecture series at UAA. He has always been interested in the mathematics of geodesic domes, which he builds as a hobby, and presented a paper to the spring 1990 meeting of the Mathematics Association of America in Portland entitled Generalizing Spherical Geodesic Domes.
