W. Stephen Wilson is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins. He served as chair of the department from 1993-1996.
His field of interest and research is homotopy theory, generally from an algebraic viewpoint. He tends to specialize in the use and development of complex (co)bordism, Brown-Peterson (co)homology and Morava K-theory.
