Biographical Information

Dr. Johnston went to the University of Missouri-Coumbia for his undergraduate work, graduating with a Bachelor of Science with a double major in mathematics and physics.  He went straight to Michigan State University, where he received a Master of Arts degree in mathematics.  After taking a year off, he went to Boston to work on his doctorate in mathematics at Northeastern University.  His dissertation was overseen by Dr. Solomon Jekel.

From 1999 to 2002 he worked at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts.  His duties there included running placement tests for incoming freshmen and running the campus mathematics tutoring.  From there he went back to the University of Missouri-Columbia to work as the calculus sequence coordinator, making sure that all sections of calculus were taught in a uniform manner.  He came to Lindenwood University in August 2006 and has been here ever since.  Starting in April 2017 he will be Vice-Chair of the Missouri Section of the Mathematical Association of America.

He is the proud father of one daughter and the annoyed owner of two dogs.
