Dr. Hunziker joined the Baylor faculty in 2004. Prior to coming to Baylor he was teaching at Brandeis University (1997-2000) and at the University of Georgia (2000-2004). Dr. Hunziker is originally from Basel, Switzerland. He came to the USA for graduate school in 1993. He is married to Kyunglim Nam and has a two children: Tobias, who was born in March 2007, and Hana, who was born in December 2008. He enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with his family and friends.

Academic Interests and Research

Dr. Hunziker's research area is the representation theory of Lie groups and related algebraic geometry and combinatorics.

Teaching Interests

Dr. Hunziker's teaching interests range from introductory calculus classes for undergraduates to specialized courses for Ph.D. students. He has also taught teacher preparation courses. In fact, one of his favorite courses he taught was a geometry course for prospective elementary teachers at the University of Georgia.
