Hi, I'm Evan, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Colorado State University.

My mathematical skills and interests lie in:

My textbook: Ordinary Differential Equations Done Right

Ordinary Differential Equations Done Right

See above for my textbook: Ordinary Differential Equations Done Right. This book should serve as a second course in ODEs for a traditional undergraduate path, or as a first course for advanced undergraduates and early graduate students. Most notably, a full sequence of calculus and linear algebra are necessary prerequisites.

Topics covered include:

Both proofs-based, and purely computational exercises are included, with the intent that the course could be administed with-or-without a formal proofs course as a prerequisite.

Furthermore, video lectures (each a guided read-through) corresponding to the entire book may be found on my YouTube channel (see below).

About Me

Ars in omnibus est. "Art is in everything." I took Latin in high school, which makes me 5x more likely to accidentally summon demons as an adult. But in all seriousness, I like to find art in everything, and such a notion defines my approach to mathematics, as well as life.

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado. I study nonlinear stochastic differential equations, statistical sampling algorithms, and related problems in functional analysis.

I reside with my wife Kira Rahn and our adorable cat Jillie Bean.

When I am not researching or teaching, you will most often find me hiking, where I enjoy foraging for wild fruits. I also enjoy cooking/baking, drinking at the local breweries (should I be advertising that?), and playing tabletop games.
