Biography

Anna Haensch received her PhD in mathematics at Wesleyan University with a thesis in number theory. She joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science as an assistant professor in 2013 while she continued her research as a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in Bonn, Germany. Her research focuses on using modern computational tools to solve classical problems in algebraic and analytic number theory. She is also interested in the mathematical algorithms and computational methods used in machine learning. After graduate school she received a fellowship from the AAAS to work as a STEM consultant on the science desk at National Public Radio. She is still very passionate about science communication and promoting mathematical literacy.
