Brief Bio

Dr. Erovenko earned a Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Virginia and joined the UNCG faculty in 2002. His early career research focused on combinatorial properties of discrete groups, most notably the bounded generation property of arithmetic groups. His current research interests lie in the field of mathematical biology.
