- Dillon received his B.S. in chemical engineering and mathematics from the University of Notre Dame in 2014.
Throughout high school and college, he had a passion for education,
but also wanted experience in industry. Dillon worked as a software developer for Epic in Madison, Wisconsin,
developing electronic medical records (EMRs). After two years, he returned to academia, and taught at Maharishi School,
a college preparatory school in Fairfield, Iowa, with an educational philosophy known as consciousness-based education.
- Dillon competed in ballroom dancing from 2011 to 2018, specializing in standard (waltz, tango, viennese waltz, foxtrot, quickstep).
The picture above shows Dillon and his dance partner Sophia at the USA Dance National Championships in 2016. Here is a video of them performing their favorite dance, the waltz.
Although he no longer competes, Dillon regularly performs in musical theatre. His office is adorned with the posters and programs of shows he has been in during his time at UNT.
- Dillon is currently working toward a Ph.D. in mathematics with Dr. Anne Shepler. His research focuses on invariant theory and combinatorics,
specifically invariant derivations and differential forms in positive characteristic.
