Daniel Alexander is a Professor of Mathematics and current associate chair of the department. He has been at Drake for over 20 years and teaches a wide variety of courses. His research involves the history of analysis in the late nineteenth twentieth centuries, in particular complex dynamics which is one of the early manifestations of chaos theory. Professor Alexander has published two books on the subject, Early Days in Complex Analysis, and A History of Complex Dynamics from Schröder to Fatou and Julia, as well as several articles and reviews.

His undergraduate major was English and he came to mathematics relatively late in life—sometimes it takes a while to discover your path. For fun he likes martial arts, watching movies and outdoor activities. He is an avid Boston sports fan.
