    Her interests are wide-ranging and interdisciplinary as is her teaching experience: the latter including innovative spatial approaches to remedial mathematics (The Ohio State University), to serving as a professor of mathematics teaching a wide range of beginning and advanced undergraduate courses, to creating spatially-oriented environmental science courses at both the beginning and advanced levels, to developing spatial projects in a virtual reality engineering course. Currently, she is Adjunct
    Professor of Mathematical Geography and Population-Environment
    Dynamics in the School of Natural Resources and Environment at The
    University of Michigan. In addition, she is a member of the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee of Community Systems Foundation, an international non-governmental organization (NGO).

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    She has published over 300 books and articles, many in peer-reviewed publications. She continues innovative approaches in publication as creator of Solstice: An Electronic Journal of Geography and Mathematics, perhaps the world’s first online
    peer-reviewed publication (1990-), and as co-creator with William C. Arlinghaus and Frank Harary of John Wiley & Sons first eBook in 2002.

Personal Interests

    She also enjoys history, zoology, foreign languages, classical music, cooking, the planning of tournament duplicate bridge events, and community service, having served nine years on the City of Ann Arbor Planning Commission (including service as its Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary),five years on the City of Ann Arbor Environmental Commission, and five years on the Ann Arbor Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch Citizen Advisory Panel.
