Aaron NienowFaculty

Senior Continuing Instructor in Math, Comp Sci, and Statistics

I was born and raised in St. Charles Minnesota, a small town between Winona and Rochester.  I attended St. Mary's University in Winona Minnesota where I earned a B.A. in Mathematics and met my wife Amanda.  After St. Mary's I took some time off before I enrolled in classes at the University of Minnesota.  While at the U of M I earned a M.S. in statistics.

I have been working at Gustavus as an Adjunct Instructor and Technology Coordinator in the Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics Department since January of 2007.  

I have three  very active children that keep me running 24 hours a day.  On the off chance that I get some time to relax you can probably find me listening to a baseball game, reading a book, riding my bike, putting together a jigsaw puzzle, coaching soccer, or roaming around theneighborhood.
