Katie Newhall joins faculty

IMG_0084_w1Katie Newhall joined the faculty of the department starting July 1, after spending the past three years as a Courant Instructor at NYU. Prior to that, she earned a B.S. in Physics, an M.S. in Engineering and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her research interests lie in stochastic processes, with particular attention to understanding large-scale and long-time dynamics of physical and biological systems through analysis and simulations of simple yet physically relevant models.

This semester, Newhall is teaching Math 528 and hopes to encourage interest in applied mathematics by recruiting more students to participate in the undergraduate Mathematical Competition in Modeling taking place at the beginning of the spring semester.

In her free time, Newhall plays cello and would rather take a dance class or a hike than go to the gym. While a graduate student, she danced professionally with Maude Baum and Company in Albany, NY.
