- WPI Mathematical Sciences
- Associate Teaching Professor and Associate Director of the Morgan Teaching and Learning Center
- I plan to explore WeBWorK for creating problem sets in Calculus, Statistics, and Probability courses.
At WPI I have taught a variety of courses in the Mathematical Sciences department ranging from Calculus, Statistics, and Probability at the undergraduate and graduate level. I have 10 years of experience in online teaching and am consistently exploring new ways to connect with students. I am an Associate Director of WPI's Morgan Teaching and Learning Center. We are responsible for campus-wide training of TA and PLA (undergraduate peer learning assistants).
I have also taught numerous Economics courses for the SPSS (Social Science and Policy Studies) department. I teach "Feed the World" for WPI's GPS (Great Problem Seminar) program, geared to involve freshmen in team project development and presentation.
I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at Clark University in October 2012. My dissertation explored theoretical models for free and open-source software. My MS Thesis in Applied Mathematics at WPI used graph theory and probability to generate the most probable cyclic-free paths (an extension of Dijkstra’s algorithm) to estimate the probability of fire spread.
