Professor, Mathematics
Vassar College

I was an undergraduate at Wesleyan University and earned my Ph.D. in mathematical logic at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. At Vassar, I have chaired the mathematics department and served as associate dean of the faculty. I am the principal investigator on Vassar's NSF Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant. I also am the secretary-treasurer of both the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) and the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL). I have long been interested in STEM education in high-need districts, and created and have directed for seventeen years a science and mathematics outreach program with Poughkeepsie High School (which I would be happy to describe to anyone interested).
