Associate Professor of Mathematics

B.S., University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh
Ph.D., University of North Carolina

Programs: Mathematics

Terry Jo Leiterman's research interests lie in the area of applied mathematics, with emphasis on fluid dynamics and mathematical models in the sciences. Her current scholarship focuses on modeling the motion of a slender body in a viscous fluid.  This work has been used to benchmark nano-scale experiments involving cilia and contributes to the Virtual Lung Project. The goal of this project is to develop effective therapies for the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis. (CV updated December 2008.)

In 2006, Leiterman was selected as a fellow to the national Project NexT program of the Mathematical Association of America. She also serves on the advisory council of the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium as the institutional representative for the College.

In 2008, with the support of SNC alumni and in collaboration with the math faculty, Leiterman began the direction of a summer research program in mathematics for undergraduate students. This continues a long and proud tradition of promoting undergraduate research in the discipline, which is revealed through the regional Pi Mu Epsilon conference (held annually at SNC since 1985) and the many lectures students have given at conferences across the nation.

Leiterman additionally advises Sigma Nu Delta which is the SNC Math Club.
