Biography:

Born and raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Terry Visentin went to the University of Waterloo for his post secondary education. There he majored in Statistics with Computer Science as an undergraduate, and obtained an MMath degree in Combinatorics. He received his PhD in 1989 and has been at the University of Winnipeg since that time.

His main research interests lie in algebraic combinatorics with a specific interest in enumerative problems. In his work he uses algebraic techniques to solve difficult counting problems, but at the same time is also able to prove significant theorems in algebra by analyzing the structure of certain well-defined mathematical objects.

He also has a love of mathematical problem solving in general and coaches students representing the University of Winnipeg in the Putnam Mathematics Competition.

Outside of Mathematics, his interests include music and bridge.
