Sense Makes Math

Pedro Morales-Almazán is a Teaching Professor at the University of California Santa Cruz. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Baylor University under the supervision of Klaus Kirsten and also holds degrees in Electronics Engineering and Applied Mathematics from Universidad de San Carlos in Guatemala.

His research interests lie in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, specifically in spectral zeta functions and their applications into number theory, quantum field theories, and related areas.

Pedro is also active and interested in mathematics education, including: inquiry-based learning, flipped classrooms, blended learning, Math Circles, and Math Outreach in general. Pedro hosts a podcast called #NotSoMath (https://www.youtube.com/user/pefemoal) and has two blogs, Towards the Limits Edge (http://towardsthelimitedge.pedromoralesalmazan.com/) and The Number Pad (http://thenumberpad.pedromoralesalmazan.com/)!
