Eli Luberoff is CEO of Desmos. Eli began his programming life on his TI-83 graphing calculator in elementary school, culminating with a working version of Monopoly which was destroyed when he removed the backup battery by accident. He began working on the software that would become Desmos.com during a year-long hiatus from Yale University in 2007, returning to graduate summa cum laude with degrees in Math and Physics in 2009. Eli was also selected by Bloomberg Businessweek as one of the top 25 entrepreneurs under 25 in 2011.
David Clark earned his PhD in 2012 from Michigan Technological University. After a 2-year postdoc teaching extremely talented high school students at the University of Minnesota, he came to the magical land of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. Some of his favorite (academic) things include researching combinatorial games with undergraduates; using mastery grading to support student learning; and helping pre-college students discover new kinds of math through enrichment and outreach programs. David is one of the winners of the MAA's 2018 Alder award for teaching. Beyond math, he is an enthusiastic (yet truly amateur) board gamer and backpacker.
