"I hope to show all students that they can understand and enjoy math and its applications."Julia C. Spencer, Ph.D., Mathematics
I grew up in central New Jersey, and went to college in New York City at NYU. Living in New York was great, and I still go back and visit a bit. When I got into UVA's graduate math program, I moved to Charlottesville, and fell in love with this area. I finished my thesis on the linearized Navier-Stokes equations in the summer of 2014, and spent the next school year teaching at Mary Baldwin College (which is now Mary Baldwin University). After that, I started teaching math for UVA's Applied Math program, which has been wonderful. Outside of my professional life, I like to do puzzles, hang out with my cat and husband, and practice Ashtanga yoga.
