Kimberly P. Hadaway

Hello, I'm Kimberly P. Hadaway.

I am a Ph.D. student in the Mathematics Department at Iowa State University, where I am the President of our chapter for the Association for Women in Mathematics. I am also involved with the Mathematicians of Color Alliance, and we are collaborating to host the Joint AWM-MOCA Speaker Series. My current research interests are combinatorics, graph theory, and math education.

Last summer, I taught a section of Calculus II as the lead instructor. During other recent summers, I participated in a Mathematics Research Community hosted by the AMS, titled Trees in Many Contexts, where my group studied enumerations of colorings of plane trees. I also served as a Graduate Mentor for the Iowa State University Math REU, where my group studied problems related to modifying Kemeny's constant.

I recently graduated from Williams College as a Mathematics and Chemistry double major. I wrote an Honors Thesis on unit interval parking functions and defective parking functions with Dr. Pamela E. Harris.
