Teaching Interests

I especially enjoy teaching mathematics courses that include some applications: multivariable calculus, linear algebra, mathematical modeling, wavelet and Fourier analysis, and other applied math electives. Most of my courses include computer labs for exploration and visualization of mathematical concepts using Mathematica, MATLAB, R, and NetLogo. In my upper level courses, students do projects on topics of their own choosing to connect the mathematics to their particular interests.


I am an Amherst College co-PI, along with Amy Wagaman and Sheila Jaswal, for the NSF Four-College Biomathematics Consortium. I am also the director of a Clare Booth Luce grant to support research by undergraduate women at Amherst College in the physical sciences, computer science, and mathematics.
