In her own words: "I consider myself a pure mathematician with research interests in algebraic combinatorics. I am very interested in taking various areas of mathematics and looking for patterns and special arrangements. (This could involve student research as well) I also am very interested in how mathematics relates to various disciplines especially art and architecture. This fall I am presenting a talk on Cultural Mathematics, showing math teachers interconnections between Western mathematics and nonwestern mathematics. Outside of the classroom, my family is the most important thing. I am involved with the public schools and usually give a talk at Salisbury High during the fall to their math club. I enjoy hiking, swimming, and reading in my spare time."
