Dr. Morris earned his doctorate at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Under the direction of Dr. Ratnasingham Shivaji, Dr. Morris studied nonlinear elliptic partial differential equations with particular emphasis on problems involving nonlinear boundary conditions. Before attending UNC-Greensboro, Dr. Morris earned both bachelors and masters degrees in mathematics at Wake Forest University. Dr. Morris earned his bachelors degree in the spring of 2010, and continued his studies at Wake Forest. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson, Dr. Morris researched the Fucik spectra of matrix and second-order differential operators, and was subsequently awarded a masters degree in the spring of 2012.

In his free time, Dr. Morris enjoys officiating basketball at both the high school and collegiate levels. He currently works NCAA Division III Mens Basketball in the Old Dominion and USA-South Athletic Conferences, as well as high school basketball with the Triad Basketball Officials Association. Dr. Morris is married to Jennifer, who is a faculty member in the Department of History at Appalachian State University. They live in Seven Devils, NC.
