Me and my family!

In 1992, I received a B.A. in Honors Mathematics from The University of Michigan; In 1998, I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin under the direction of Georgia Benkart. Since then, I have been happily working here at Swarthmore College. I've wanted to teach math since I was ten years old (cheesy--but true--story)! I completed a minor in math education at the University of Wisconsin, and I support reform at all levels of the educational system (kindergarten through graduate school). My main interests include increasing the representation of women and minorities in the mathematical sciences, improving the experience of undergraduate math majors at institutions both large and small, and assessing the outcomes of various types of undergraduate curriculum reform.
