Matt Baker, Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies at Georgia Tech's School of Mathematics, is no stranger to awards both for his teaching and research. It turns out, he is also an award-winning magician, two times over. Dr. Baker has been named the 2015 Greater Atlanta Magician of the Year by the Atlanta Society of Magicians and Georgia Magic Club, a local ring of the world's largest magic organization, the International Brotherhood of Magicians. His exploits combining magic with math to enhance the teaching experience were covered in the inaugural edition of the ProofReader, an annual alumni publication of the School of Mathematics.
