Manning to Serve as AWM Workshop Director
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) has named Meredith Associate Professor of Mathematics Cammey Cole Manning as its workshop director. Manning will oversee AWM’s successful workshop programs by coordinating with the workshop committees and the AWM Executive Committee.
As a member of all of the workshop committees, Manning will provide continuity for the workshop program. She will work with the executive director, Maeve McCarthy, and the managing director, Jennifer Lewis, to seek funding for the workshop program. Other duties will include grant reporting and facilitating volunteer efforts for AWM’s workshop programs.
Manning received her B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Duke University, and her M.S and Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from North Carolina State University under the direction of Hien T. Tran. Manning accepted a faculty position at Meredith College after receiving her Ph.D. and is now an associate professor.
Manning was a 2001 Project NExT fellow and began her involvement with AWM in 2000 as a graduate student when she participated in an AWM workshop at the SIAM Annual Meeting and in 2002 when she participated in an AWM workshop for Postdocs at the SIAM Annual Meeting. She has served as a mentor for the AWM workshop at the SIAM Annual Meeting since July 2003. She has helped organize many programs at conferences including AWM workshops and research minisymposia at SIAM meetings, as well as SAMSI/CRSC undergraduate workshops.
Her research interests include developing and implementing technical concepts from linear and nonlinear dynamics and numerical analysis to study and improve the modeling of physiological and biological systems. In 2005, she received the Pauline Davis Perry Award for Excellence in Research and Publication from Meredith College.
