BMCC Professor Marcos Zyman holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). He has been a faculty member at BMCC since Fall 2007.

Before joining the Mathematics Department at BMCC, Professor Zyman taught at The City College of New York and Bronx Community College. His main research interests are in combinatorial group theory. In particular, he studies nilpotent, solvable and exponential groups.

With his colleagues, Professors David Allen and Margaret H. Dean, Professor Zyman is the co-founder and co-organizer of the BMCC Math Colloquium, a research seminar series that features BMCC and CUNY math faculty, as well as invited speakers from other universities.
