About Yevgeniya

As a math educator for over seventeen years, I continue to be passionate about the field of mathematics, its relevance in our daily lives, and the experiences of math students. My research interests are student mathematical mindsets, professional development & self-efficacy of academic leaders, and universal design for learning.

In addition to my teaching and administrative roles, I am also the co-founder and co-director of the All Girls Math Academy at the University of New Haven, established in July 2015.
