Website

Dr. Abadi obtained her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 2013, and a dual M.S. in Applied Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering in 2010 from the University of Michigan. Prior to joining UW Bothell, she held a dual appointment as a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University and a visiting scientist at the University of Washington, School of Oceanography from 2013 to 2015.

Her research focuses on underwater acoustics, specifically investigating the impact of ocean noise on marine mammals. Dr. Abadi has worked on several interdisciplinary projects involving array signal processing, bioacoustics, marine engineering, and acoustical imaging.

Thomas Humphries

Thomas Humphries, Ph.D

Assistant Professor

Mathematics

Office: HH - 1436
Email:thumphri@uw.edu

Dr. Humphries received his Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. Prior to that he completed a BMath (Joint Applied Math and Computer Science) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. He began work as an Assistant Professor at UW Bothell in Fall 2015, following postdoctoral appointments in the math departments at Oregon State University and Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Dr. Humphries primary research interest is tomographic image reconstruction, particularly iterative methods for CT and SPECT imaging. He has worked on developing techniques for reconstruction of dynamic images in SPECT, and reconstruction from polyenergetic and sparse-view data in CT. While at Memorial University he also worked on derivative-free optimization techniques applied industrial problems, which continues to be a topic of interest to him.

Website

Dr. McLoud received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Arkansas in 2002 and her B.S. in Mathematics from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma in 1997. She joined the UW Bothell faculty in 2013 as a tenured associate professor. Prior to joining UW Bothell, she worked at the University of Texas at Tyler. While at UT Tyler, she not only gained experience as a tenure-track faculty, but she served as the Associate Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.

Dr. McLoud’s current research interests include various areas in discrete mathematics including knot theory, tiling theory, and combinatorics. More accessible areas of mathematics allow her to involve undergraduate students in her research. Dr. McLoud is the principal investigator on a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) grant establishing the first NSF REU site at UW Bothell. In summer 2015, a tiling theory research result involving an undergraduate and now UW alum, David Von Derau, and colleague, Casey Mann, caught much media attention as well as attention from the mathematics community; after 30 years since the last major result, they discovered the 15th pentagon to tile the plane.

Clark Musselman, Ph.D.

Lecturer

Mathematics

Office: HH-1438
Email: musselc@uw.edu

Website

Dr. Musselman received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Michigan State University (MSU). He also holds a M.S. in mathematics from Oregon State University and a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Clarkson University.  Previously, he taught in both the Mathematics and Physics departments at Western Washington University.  Additionally, he spent two years at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, an early college in the Berkshire mountains of Western Massachusetts, where he taught all levels of undergraduate mathematics.

His scholarly work in mathematical physics and applied analysis uses Markov processes, semigroups, and spectral theory to understand the influence of disorder in physical models.

His primary goals as a mathematics teacher are to improve the confidence of his students by working through difficult ideas in supportive environments and, relatedly, to empower them to set high standards for themselves. Further, he aims to instill a sense of curiosity and commitment so that they may meet or exceed their personal goals both in college and after graduation.

Alexandria Theakston Musselman is finishing her Ph.D. in mathematics education at Michigan State University (MSU). She holds a M.S. in mathematics, also from MSU. Prior to coming to UW Bothell, she taught at Western Washington University and Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Massachusetts. She has experience teaching many undergraduate mathematics courses – ranging from remedial college algebra through calculus. Additionally, she has taught multiple mathematics courses for pre-service teachers.

Her personal research interests include understanding the purposes of school mathematics, exploring the promotion of equitable access to meaningful mathematics for all groups, and gaining insight into students' mathematical identities and experiences at the secondary and undergraduate levels.

Email: pietrop@uw.edu

Website

Dr. Paparella earned a Ph.D. degree in mathematics from Washington State University in 2013, under the co-supervision of Judith J. McDonald and Michael J. Tsatomeros. Prior to his appointment at UWB, he was a visiting assistant professor in the department of mathematics at The College of William and Mary. His industry-experience includes a stint as a business analyst at Avista Corporation, where he was the lead-programmer and lead-modeler on a software-project to optimize Avista's energy portfolio. He was also a mathematics instructor at North Idaho College and Spokane Falls Community College, where he taught developmental mathematics courses.


His research interests lie in nonnegative matrix theory, matrix function theory, combinatorial matrix theory, linear algebra education, and the philosophy of mathematics. Currently, he is working on the nonnegative inverse eigenvalue problem, which is to characterize the spectra of nonnegative matrices.
