Marie's personal web page.
Marie Snipes joined the Kenyon math department in 2009. Her research interests lie in the field of geometric measure theory, an area of math that uses measure theory to analyze geometric properties of sets and has its origins in the study of soap films. Prior to her doctoral studies at the University of Michigan, Marie spent four years in the Air Force conducting statistical analyses and developing mathematical models of personnel data. This applied math experience complements her academic perspective as a mathematics instructor.
Outside the classroom, Marie's primary hobby is applied topology through a hands-on study of continuous deformations of phyllosilicate minerals (in other words, throwing pottery). She also enjoys playing racquetball, Scrabble, and chess.
