a bit about me:
I'm Noelle, a sixth year graduate student at Wesleyan University. My main areas of research are dynamics and geometry. My advisor is David Constantine. 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.
In the spring 2020 semester, I am the TA for a discrete math class.
I am also on the directed reading program committee at Wesleyan. This semester, we're implementing a few new things, such as having students self report the time they spend as well as adding more opportunities for students to provide feedback.
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
See details in my CV
My research is in dynamics and geometry. I'm currently thinking a lot about marked length spectrum rigidity results. I talk a little bit about some of the settings and tools I use in blog posts.
Since there's a literal pandemic, all my academic travel has been postponed or cancelled.
I'll be at home working my thesis.
Send me an email if you'd like to virtually talk about math!

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. If you would like to learn more about DRP, the website for the DRP network is here, with Wesleyan's DRP website here.
I'm passionate about finding more ways to make sure that underrepresented students are welcomed and supported on their math journey. If you have ideas or would like to work on something together, please contact me.
