David Shoup

Assistant Professor of Mathematics


Professional Education

  • Bachelors of Science in Mathematics - Lehigh University
  • Master of Arts in Mathematics - University of Maryland
  • Master of Arts in Mathematics - The George Washington University
  • Ph.D. in Mathematics - The George Washington University


Dr. Shoup grew up in the Lehigh Valley and attended nearby Lehigh University, where he earned a BS in mathematics with an honors thesis focusing on regression analysis. He then pursued an MA in mathematics at the University of Maryland, where his Masters thesis involved the development of the Bieberbach conjecture in complex analysis. In the Spring of 2015, Dr. Shoup completed his Ph.D. at GWU in mathematics with a focus on locating stationary sets along the boundary of inhibitory systems. He was a teaching assistant and sole contact instructor for eleven years at the college level before joining the faculty at Alvernia.
