email: gbaker@utk.edu (Knoxville)Until 1999, Dr. Baker was a Professor at the University of Tennesee-Knoxville. After an excelent career at Tennesee, Garth Baker eschewed the career to be a full-time lecturer at Bermuda College. He is also Director of the The Bermuda Institute for Mathematics in Finance and Insurance. In 1999 he organized a conference ":The Future of Mathematics in Business" in Hamilton, Bermuda.

He is author of several articles in both pure and applied mathematics. He has held several faculty positions with other prestigious colleges and universities.
