a bit about me:
I'm Noelle, a Bahamian mathematician. My main areas of research are dynamics and geometry. My advisor was David Constantine at Wesleyan University. When I'm not doing math, chances are that you'll find me baking, reading, or dreaming up new things to try when I'm teaching.
I'm an assistant professor at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas! Here's my CV.

In the 2021/2022 academic year, I'm teaching Modern Calculus I and Intro Stats.
I was also on the directed reading program committee at Wesleyan. Fall 2018 was the first semester of the directed reading program at Wesleyan. I wrote some thoughts about it here. In spring 2019, I worked with a student. We did an introductory survey of discrete geometry. There are more details on what we talked about here.
In the past, I have
helped to create material and plan a new calculus sequence at Wesleyan
taught calculus courses
been a teaching assistant for various Wesleyan math courses
taught a seventh grade math class for several summers
been the TA for a math course run by the Wesleyan Center for Prison Education
been the head supplemental instruction leader at Vassar College

My research is in dynamics and geometry. I'm currently thinking a lot about marked length spectrum rigidity, thermodynamic formalism, and boundary action rigidity.
Recent Upcoming talks: Wake Forest Colloquium November 2021; TCNJ Colloquium March 2022
I gave a virtual talk in April 2020 on my thesis work at GOATS. I also gave a talk on a cool dynamical property in July 2020 at Talk Math with Your Friends. Both of the videos are below!
I also co-organized the Midwest Dynamical Systems Early Career Conference on Nov 14th, 2020! We have posted the
recordings of talks. We also had a virtual poster session, with both posters and short videos!

In the 2018/2019 academic year, I worked on the pilot of Wesleyan's Directed Reading Program. Each grad student involved is worked one-on-one with an undergraduate student in the style of a reading course.
