Assistant Professor of Mathematics
“Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality.”
— Richard Courant

Paulina Volosov comes from Colorado. She completed her B.S. in mathematics and German at Hillsdale College. While a student at Hillsdale, she spent a year in Saarbr├╝cken as part of the German study-abroad program and combined her studies of mathematics and German by taking math classes in German. She subsequently went to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to complete her M.S. in applied mathematics and Ph.D. in mathematics. Her dissertation explored neuronal network reconstruction and the use of spectral properties to classify network structure. Currently, her research focuses on further brain network modeling.
