Jen Paulhus, Ph.D.

Sometimes it's so hard to find what it is I'm trying to say. People might think you can turn creativity on and off, but its not like that. It just kinda comes out: a mash up of all these things you collect in your mind. You never know when it's gonna happen. But when it does, it's like magic. It's just that simple. And it's just that hard.

This summer I am joining the math and statistics department at Mount Holyoke College. For the previous 13 years, I have been a professor in mathematics at Grinnell College. My research is primarily in computational math, particularly related to questions in algebra, number theory, and geometry. Currently I work on questions of how Jacobian varieties decompose, and group actions on Riemann surfaces.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and I was a postdoc at Kansas State University from 2007-2010. I also spent a year at Villanova University. My childhood and formative years were spent in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.
