Madeline Locus Dawsey

Outreach During Grad School:

  • Emory Math Circle: I participated in a weekly math circle for middle and high school students at Emory in Fall 2015. Besides the weekly sessions, Emory Math Circle also participates in the Atlanta Science Festival Exploration Expo and runs occasional events at the Children's Museum of Atlanta.
  • STEM Pathways: I gave a sample Calculus I lecture at the Emory pre-orientation program called STEM Pathways, which is designed to help provide support to natural sciences and mathematics students who are the first generation in their families to attend college, or are in identity groups underrepresented in STEM fields.

Leadership Positions:

  • REU advisor: I advised one of the 2018 Emory Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) groups on the mathematics of swimming analysis, which included measuring several elite swimmers with inertial measurement units (IMUs) and analyzing the tri-axial acceleration data to identify the main components of sprint freestyle strokes.
  • TATTO teaching panel: I organized, led, and moderated a graduate student panel from Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, and Chemistry at the 2018 Emory Teaching Assistant Training and Teaching Opportunity (TATTO) summer workshop to answer incoming graduate students' questions about teaching for the first time.
  • TATTO micro-teaching: I was also one of the micro-teaching facilitators at the TATTO summer workshop. I was paired with one Emory faculty member to provide feedback to a small group of incoming graduate students who presented short lectures on topics of their choice within their fields of study.
