Research Interests

Dave (Witte) Morris' research almost always has something to do with groups. He usually studies algebraic properties of infinite groups of matrices, such as normal subgroups, homomorphisms, and actions on manifolds. He also looks at applications of finite groups to problems in graph theory.
