Shamuel (Sam) Auyeung completed his undergraduate degree at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI, in mathematics, philosophy, and ancient Greek in 2017. He obtained his PhD in 2023 at Stony Brook University, with a focus on using Floer theory to answer questions about algebraic singularities. Sam also has research interests in the relationship between string and symplectic topology and independently, almost complex geometry.

He enjoys sharing his passion for mathematics in the classroom and his goal is to show students that maths involves concreteness and abstraction, precision and conjecture, tradition and creativity. Most fundamentally, as evident from the Greek word, mathematics is about human understanding.
