About Me:

 

I graduated in 2010 with my Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences under the direction of Dr. Dan S. Archdeacon from the University of Vermont, and I do research on surface embeddings of designs.  I am spending this academic year as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Saint Michael's College, in addition to my adjunct position at UVM.  While a doctoral student, I was also president of the Graduate Student Senate.   I completed my M.A. in Pure Mathematics in 2005 at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI, focusing my studies on graph theory and combinatorics.  Before that, I did my undergraduate work at Converse College and graduated in 2003 summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics.  I married Joshua Knox in 2006.  He is currently the Latin teacher at Mount Mansfield Union High School in Jericho, VT, as well as a M.Ed. student in UVMís College of Education and Social Services.
