Duane Cooper earned his B.S. from Morehouse College (1983  mathematics), M.S. from Georgia Institute of Technology (1983  Electrical Engineering), and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley (1993 thesis advisor Morris Hirch, area neural nets.). From 1993 until 2002, Dr. Cooper held appointments in mathematics and education at the University of MarylandCollege Park. Currently, Dr. Cooper holds a joint appointment as an Assistant Professor Morehouse College
