Gregory Burnham Gregory Burnham — Treasurer, Board of Directors
Gregory Burnham is a Researcher at Bridgewater Associates. He was a student at Mathcamp in 2004 - 2006 and a JC in 2007 - 2010. (To this day, his performance as a new JC has set the gold standard for excellence among the Mathcamp staff.) He has continued to be involved with Mathcamp every summer since, and now brings his thoughtful and thorough approach to the Board.

Dan Zaharopol Daniel Zaharopol — Member, Board of Directors
After many summers as a student, JC, and Mentor at Mathcamp, Dan became the founder and Executive Director of Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), which works to create a realistic pathway for underserved middle school students to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers. He brings his expertise in non-profit governance and mathematics education to the Board. Dan blogs at Consider Learning.

Allan Adams Allan Adams — Member, Board of Directors
Allan Adams is a theoretical physicist working at the intersection of fluid dynamics, quantum field theory and string theory. His research in theoretical physics focuses on string theory both as a model of quantum gravity and as a strong-coupling description of non-gravitational systems. He shares his love of physics with audiences at MIT, TED, NOVA, and Mathcamp, where he has been a frequent visiting speaker.
