Linda Green, PhD
Dr. Green joined the department in 2010. She holds a B.S. and M.S. from the University of Chicago and a PhD in mathematics from Princeton University. After a post-doc at the Mathematical Science Research Institute in Berkeley and a year teaching at the North Carolina School of Science and Math, Dr. Green spent several years doing mathematical modeling of breast cancer at the San Francisco company Archimedes, Inc. Dr. Green returned to teaching in 2009 with a visiting position at Mills College. Her main research interests are three-dimensional topology and mathematical modeling of disease. In addition, Dr. Green directs the Marin Math Circle, a math enrichment program for students in grades 1 - 12, and the Bay Area Math Olympiad, a proof-style contest for middle and high school students. Dr. Green has taught Intermediate Algebra for College Students, College Algebra, and Precalculus.
