David M. Goulet

Associate Professor of Mathematics

Dr. Dave Goulet is an expert in mathematical biology and physiology. He has been heavily involved in cross-disciplinary research with biology and chemistry faculty, seeking ways to use math to solve problems in these fields. Dr. Goulet helped establish a new major in biomathematics, which uses applied math in support of the life sciences. He was a mentor for Rose-Hulman͛s team in the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition and co-advises the Climbing Club. In his free time, Dr. Goulet enjoys rock climbing and bouldering, building and repairing bicycles, home theater design, and Godzilla movies.
