Friends of the Library Lecture: An Engineer with a Phi Beta Kappa Key in the Math Department

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 12:45 PM to 1:30 PM – Doherty Main Lobby

Why math? Dr. Mary Flagg wants to share how simple everyday objects and concepts can become beautiful and useful mathematics. No algebra skills required!

Why her? She will share her scholarly journey of discovery and challenge you to continue your own journey.

Why here? The University of St. Thomas is a special place in which faculty are able to help students along their journey of discovery and life-long learning. Come share the excitement and insights of a new member of the UST community.

Dr. Mary Flagg has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University and was invited to join Phi Beta Kappa in her junior year. She went on to receive an M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology, and was nominated to Sigma Xi, the scientific research honor society. Dr. Flagg’s second journey in graduate school resulted in an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Houston, with a specialty in algebra. She worked as a lecturer at the University of Houston before accepting the position of Assistant Professor of Mathematics here at UST.
