His goal is to encourage and support mathematical education among the aboriginal population. Veselin was awarded the 2015 3M National Teaching Fellowship. Veselin is a co-author (together with Dr. Mark MacLean, Department of Mathematics, UBC) of Small Number's stories and the producer of all Small Number animated films.
