Valerie Hower Assistant Professor of Mathematics

With doctoral training in pure mathematics and postdoctoral work in the biological sciences, my research spans multiple disciplines. I am interested in genomics and computational biology as well as algebraic topology and discrete mathematics. Additionally, I enjoy using ideas from topology, probability, and combinatorics in data analysis.
