Dr. Jessica Ellis joins the Department of Mathematics faculty

Ken Klopfenstein

Dr. Jessica Ellis joins the Department of Mathematics as an assistant professor in mathematics education. Dr. Ellis received her M.S. in pure mathematics from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, Calif. in 2010. In 2014, she received her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education, a joint doctoral program, from the University of California of San Diego & San Diego State University. Her thesis, "Preparing Future College Instructors: The Role of Graduate Student Teaching Assistants (GTA's) in Successful College Calculus Programs", was written under the advisement of Professor Chris Rasmussen. Broadly speaking, her research is in undergraduate mathematics education, with a focus on undergraduate students' learning of mathematics and graduate students' learning how to teach undergraduate mathematics (specifically calculus and linear algebra).

Dr. Ellis is passionate about visiting new places, both for work and for fun, and loves these opportunities to get out of her comfort zone, get lost, and meet strangers. Whether she is traveling or at home, she loves surfing, swimming, hiking, and eating wonderful meals. By relocating to Colorado, she is looking forward to adding snow-related activities to this list. You can stop by her office in 121 Weber to welcome her to wonderful Colorado.
