was born in Chicago, IL and raised by my parents Victoria
Charles White. I have two siblings: Michael and Catherine. I attended
Saint Clement School from K-8 and then Saint Ignatius High School,
where I began to develop my interest in mathematics by participating in
the math team. I next attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, and
studied abroad in the Budapest Semester in Mathematics program before
starting my graduate career at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. There I studied
mathematics and computer science concurrently, completing my computer
science masters degree in 2012 (under the supervision of Danny
Krizanc), and my PhD in mathematics
in 2014 (under the supervision of Mark
I began as an Assistant Professor at Denison in the fall of 2014, and
was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2020.
I used to be a semi-professional beach volleyball player, but have
stopped playing competitively in recent years. I have since taken up
running, swimming, and rowing. I continue to coach volleyball in my
free time. I have been an assistant coach for the Bowdoin
NCAA women's teams, and as a head coach for the Bowdoin
club volleyball teams. If you need any drills you can email me.
