Assistant Professor of Mathematics

News & Upcoming Events!

  • Prof. Fox's new book, Statistics, an Introduction: Workbook, was published just in time to use in her Spring 2022 course MA 133M.

  • Prof. Fox discussed her new project, ``Management of Epidemics through Governance," at the MAA Florida section annual meeting in February 2022.

  • Six students - Payton Bivens ('24), Isaac Blackburn ('22), Karin Ebey ('25), Kat Fillman ('23), Mariana Olivares-Cely ('25), and Kelsey Weeden ('23) - conducting projects with Prof. Fox presented their work at the MAA Florida section annual meeting in February 2022.

⭐︎ Isaac and Kat were the winners of Best Student Poster Presentation! See their work here. ⭐︎

  • These students will also be presenting their work at the Eckerd College Research Symposium in March 2022.

⭐︎ Karin and Mariana won a poster award! See their work here. ⭐︎

  • Prof. Fox was invited to introduce disease modeling and discuss some of her current projects with the cadets at the US Military Academy in West Point, NY at their Math Forum in March 2022.

  • Prof. Fox was invited to discuss her new publication, "Mathematically Modeling the Effect of Touch Frequency on the Environmental Transmission of Clostridioides difficile in Healthcare Settings," at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in April 2022.

About Me

I received my Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Tennessee in 2019 and soon thereafter joined the faculty at Eckerd College. My research area is Mathematical Biology with a focus in disease modeling. I enjoy teaching applied mathematics courses including probability, statistics and differential equations.

In my spare time I enjoy birding watching (especially with the Eckerd birding club!), crafting with yarn, tending to my plant collection, and cuddling with my two dogs and cat. In the summers I travel with my husband to see new species of birds. In summer 2022 we're going to Alaska!
