Mathematics

Dana Rowland

Associate Professor and Co-chair

Mathematics

Degree(s)

Ph.D. in Mathematics, Stanford University

Professional Experience

Dana Rowland received a B.A. in mathematics and English from the University of Notre Dame and received an M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from Stanford University. Her doctoral focus was in algebraic topology, with a particular interest in holomorphic mapping spaces, holomorphic bundles, K-theory, and homotopy theory. 

Her areas of expertise include knot theory, discrete mathematics and calculus. 

Research

Her current research involves studying different ways certain types of graphs can be embedded in three dimensional space, and understanding the collection of knotted links and cycles in these spatial embeddings. This work is motivated by her interest in representations of graphs which are minimally entangled.
