Madeline Locus Dawsey

Leadership Positions:

  • Summer 2019 REU advisor: I am advising one of the 2019 Emory Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) groups on the mathematics of swimming analysis, including measuring several elite swimmers with inertial measurement units (IMUs) and analyzing the tri-axial acceleration data to identify commonalities/differences and potential weaknesses in all of the strokes.
  • Spring 2019 undergraduate research advising: I am co-advising (with Ken Ono) an Emory University undergraduate student on a research project related to the mathematics of swimming analysis, including analyzing tri-axial acceleration data collected from IMUs to identify potential weaknesses in three world-class breaststrokers.
  • Summer 2018 REU advisor: I advised one of the 2018 Emory REU groups on the mathematics of swimming analysis, which included measuring several elite swimmers with IMUs and analyzing the tri-axial acceleration data to identify the main components of sprint freestyle strokes.
  • Summer 2018 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.
  • Summer 2018 TATTO micro-teaching: I was also one of the micro-teaching facilitators at the TATTO summer workshop. I was paired with one Emory University 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.

Outreach:

  • STEM Pathways: I gave two sample Calculus I lectures at the Emory University pre-orientation program called STEM Pathways, which is designed to help provide support to natural sciences and mathematics students who are either first generation college students in their families or in identity groups underrepresented in STEM fields.
  • Emory Math Circle: I participated in a weekly math circle for middle and high school students at Emory University in Fall 2015.
