Victoria S Akin

Assistant Professor of the Practice of Mathematics


I am an Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Mathematics Department. I work primarily on teaching and math education. I am currently interested in the retention of women in STEM fields and the effect of intervention programs on girls' attitudes and beliefs about math. I am co-directing the Girls Exploring Math (GEM) program as part of this research effort. Additional interests include grading systems, facilitating whole-class discussions, and the impact of professional development programs on graduate student teaching.
