In honor of Women’s History Month, SIAM is spotlighting female mathematicians throughout March. Dr. Talitha Washington is the inaugural Director of the Atlanta University Center Data Science Initiative, a Professor of Mathematics at Clark Atlanta University, and an affiliate faculty at Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College. Dr. Washington was a VIGRE Research Associate in the Department of Mathematics at Duke University.
Dr. Washington’s research interests include the applications of differential equations to problems in biology and engineering; the development of nonstandard finite difference schemes to numerically solve dynamical systems; and computational and data sciences. She has special interest in STEM education policy including mathematics and social justice; STEM diversity; African Americans in STEM; effective strategies for teaching and learning mathematics; and curriculum design.
