As a math educator for more than fourteen 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 in student mathematical mindsets and the retention of women and under-represented minorities in STEM.
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.
