My full name is Stephen G. Simpson. I am a senior mathematician at the Pennsylvania State University. I am active in mathematical research and in the mentoring of undergraduates, Ph.D. students, postdocs, and faculty members in our Department of Mathematics. My principal research areas are mathematical logic and foundations of mathematics.

My research is currently supported by the Simons Foundation. In the recent past my research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Templeton Foundation, and Penn State's Eberly College of Science.

My wife is Padma Raghavan. Here at Penn State, Padma was the Associate Vice President for Research, the Director of the Institute for CyberScience, and a Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering. In January 2016 Padma and I moved to Vanderbilt University, where Padma is the Vice Provost for Research and I am a Research Professor of Mathematics.

In May 2016 Padma and I attended a conference in honor of my 70th birthday.
