Faculty & Staff

Tony Vazzana earned a Bachelor's of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1993 and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1998. He enjoys teaching a wide range of classes from our introductory Quantitative Reasoning course to our upper level theoretical courses. He is particularly interested in the areas of algebra, number theory, and cryptography, and has advised a number of capstone projects in these areas and others. In recent years, he has also developed an interest in actuarial science, and to better empathize with students in this track, he has begun taking the exams in the Society of Actuaries ASA Pathway. After 20 years away from taking tests of any kind, he was surprised to discover how much his heart was racing at the start of the first exam. In his spare time, he likes to golf and run. He's not particularly accomplished at either, but he can at least complete a round of golf very quickly.
