Dmitry Panteleev

Research & Development Engineer

Dmitry Panteleev is a Research & Development Engineer for Castle Point Learning Systems. Focusing on the core functionality of the Gradarius Stepwise Learning Platform, his work includes support for the advanced Calculus course, algorithms for solutions and verification of expressions. He also maintains development infrastructure, including task management and system testing. Prior to his work at CPLS, he was a doctoral student at Stevens Institute of Technology and a teaching assistant for several Calculus courses.

Dr. Panteleev continues to work on researching Mathematical Solutions Processing which he performed at Stevens Institute Of Technology while working on his Ph.D. His primary student research project was focused on the application of efficient modeling to complicated Mathematical hypotheses. This work required implementation of several domain-specific algorithms in Algebra and parallel processing of large amounts of data. Since his early years in Russia, he has studied advanced Mathematics and software engineering, receiving awards in city and country-level competitions. During his master-level computer-science courses, he served as a software engineer intern for Yandex, the largest Russian web search engine.

Dr. Panteleev holds a Mathematics Specialist degree from Moscow State University and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Stevens Institute of Technology.
