Bio:  Jonathan Corbett grew up in a small logging town in rural Northern California. After high school, he attended the University of California at Berkeley where he obtained a B.A. in Mathematics. After this, he attended graduate school at Washington University in St. Louis where he studied harmonic analysis and received his Ph.D. in 1999.
Afterwards, he took a postdoctoral Fellowship in Statistical Genetics in the Department of Psychiatry at the Washington University School of Medicine. At the end of his postdoc, he accepted a faculty position in the Division of Biostatistics at Washington University in 2002 and moved to the Department of Genetics in 2005. In 2007, he left the Department of Genetics to return to teaching and studying mathematics. This paid off in 2009 when he accepted a tenuretrack position as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at HarrisStowe State University.
