Welcome Back Dr. Marta Civil!
We are very happy to announce that Dr. Marta Civil will be returning to the Department as the 1st Roy F. Graesser Chair in Mathematics. Marta specializes in Mathematics Education. She works mostly in teacher education and equity in mathematics education. In particular she focuses on a socio-cultural approach to the mathematics education of ethnic and language minority students (school age and adults). We will welcome her back this Fall.
On April 15 Dr. David Savitt was honored as a recipient of the
Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, which is
the highest honor bestowed by the United States Government on science
and engineering professionals in the early stages on their independent
research careers. (Photo credit: Beatriz Verdugo)
