Service 2013-2014

I participated in a range of service activities from Summer 2013 to Spring 2014.


  • Member of the Assistant Professor of Mathematics Search Committee
  • Member Graduate Admissions Committee
  • Member of Graduate Testing Committee
  • Member of the Colloquium Committee
  • Member of the ASPiRE Planning Committee
  • One of the Mathematics Department Representatives at the Joint Mathematics Meetings Employment Center

Being part of a job search committee was a time-consuming, yet enjoyable endeavor. As part of the colloquium committee, I helped bring Dr. Pamela Harris to speak at our mathematics colloquium at no cost to the department or university. I also arranged for Dr. Rolland Trapp to speak at the ASPiRE conference and the Whitaker STEM Seminar series. I am very grateful that the Whitaker Center paid for almost all of Dr. Trapps travel expenses, saving the ASPiRE Conference and the Mathematics Department a small fortune. I also submitted an article about the ASPiRE Conference to the Spring CAS Quarterly.
