Dr. Pike joined the faculty at Memorial University in September 1998 and has subsequently taught courses in cryptography, graph theory, mathematical computing, and other subjects. Dr. Pike has held a research grant from NSERC to study problems in combinatorics and graph theory since 1999 and has also received grants from CFI and NSERC for high performance computing equipment. His research has involved graph decompositions, cycle properties of graphs, as well as computational problems in combinatorics and graph theory.
Dr. Pike is a Fellow of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications. He is a member of the Executive Committee for the CanaDAM Conference and also serves on the NSERC Evaluation Group for research grants in Mathematics and Statistics.
