Terry Jo Leiterman

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 PdD research focused 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 at UNC-Chapel Hill. The goal of this project is to develop effective therapies for the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis. Leiterman’s current scholarship includes her PhD work along with modeling population dynamics and fluid systems. She runs the SNC Fluid Mechanics Laboratory in the Gehl-Mulva Science Center.

In 2006, Leiterman was selected as a fellow to the national Project NexT program of the Mathematical Association of America

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 (PME) conference (held annually at SNC since 1985) and the many lectures students have given at conferences across the nation. PME is the national mathematics honorary society. This work has led to the Poss-Wroble Summer Undergraduate Fellowship in Mathematics at SNC, which supports students as research scholars full-time in the summer culminating in the dissemination of their work at the national MathFest conference in August.
