Faith and reason are compatible in the search for truth. This belief informs the Benedictine approach to the sciences. We help students develop a greater appreciation for this balance through programs that enable students to draw from different fields of knowledge, to ask questions, and to solve problems.

Tim Comar, Mathematics
Dr. Timothy D. Comar received his Ph.D. in mathematics from The University of Michigan in 1996. He has held visiting positions at Saint Louis University and Valparaiso University and has also taught at several Chicago-area colleges. In addition to teaching, Dr. Comar has experience as a pension actuary and has managed content development for test generating software at the textbook publisher, Addison-Wesley. His current interests include hyperbolic manifolds, Kleinian groups, topology, and the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics. Dr. Comar can be contacted at
Anthony DeLegge, Mathematics

Dr. Anthony DeLegge received his Ph.D in mathematics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2010. He is also a proud member of the Benedictine University class of 2005, having graduated with a B.S. in mathematics. His research interests are in math biology, including ecological problems with financial analogs and epidemiology. He is also interested in the teaching and learning of college mathematics. Dr. DeLegge can be contacted via e-mail at

Manu Kaur, Mathematics
Dr. Manmohan Kaur received her PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2001. Her research interests include functional analysis, operator theory and cyptology. She is also interested in the use of technology in mathematics education. Before coming to the United States, Dr. Kaur taught at the University of Delhi, India. You may contact her by email at
Jeremy Nadolski, Mathematics
Dr. Jeremy Nadolski joined the faculty at Benedictine University in 2004. Dr. Jeremy Nadolski received his Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Kentucky (greatest basketball school in the country) in August 2004. He, also, is an alum of Benedictine having received his B.S. in mathematics in 1998. His research interests include Mixture Modeling, Functional Data Analysis, and Computational Statistics. You may contact Dr. Nadolski by email at the address
Tom Wangler, Mathematics
Dr. Thomas Wangler joined the faculty at Benedictine University in 1990. He earned the doctorate in applied mathematics from Old Dominion University that same year. In the past he has worked with the NASA-JOVE program on mathematical modeling of solid-state laser systems and their application to remote sensing. He is currently interested in dynamical systems, chaos theory, and quantitative literacy. You may contact Dr. Wangler via email at
Ellen Ziliak, Mathematics
Dr. Ellen Ziliak joined Benedictine University fall 2010 after receiving her PhD in mathematics from Colorado State University in May 2010. Although she did her graduate work in Colorado Ellen is originally from the Mid-West growing up in St. Louis, MO. Her current interests lie in computational group theory, graph theory, number theory and the use of technology in the classroom. Dr. Ziliak can be contacted at
