Arthur Lim


Arthur Lim is an Associate Professor of the Practice of Mathematics at Notre Dame. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics at the University of Utah in 2001. He took visiting faculty positions at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities, 2001 – 2003) and at the University of Arizona (Tucson, 2003 – 2006). Arthur joined Notre Dame in 2006.

He says: “Mathematics pedagogy to me is communication art. I enjoy explaining the technicalities of mathematics in the context of its history and development. It is important to create learning experiences in and beyond the classroom to help my students understand mathematics.” Arthur is the recipient of the Joyce Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching (2012), and other teaching awards from universities he previously taught in.

Arthur’s research interests are in the areas of Mathematical Analysis and pedagogy of Mathematics. His current active research projects include combinatorial matrix analysis applied to random matrices, competition models for ISPs (in collaboration with Hong Guo, Mendoza College), and implementation and designing of interactive online math questions with web-based assessment systems.
