Katie V. Johnson

Dr. Katie V. Johnson earned her B.S. in mathematics (with honors) from the College of William and Mary, and M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Her research interests include combinatorics and graph theory, with a particular fondness for probabilistic arguments and clever algorithms.  She co-organizes a weekend event for middle-school girls called GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science) that exposes girls to interesting STEM topics that they likely won’t see in their classes.  Dr. Johnson is also a co-PI on a large NSF Noyce grant that provides scholarships for STEM majors who agree to teach in local high-needs public schools after graduation.  As part of this grant, she runs the Learning Assistant program and the Summer Internship program.  Dr. Johnson has a one-year old son named Lucas, a loving husband Brian who is also a math professor, and a German short-haired pointer dog named Maggie.  She loves to bake and travels whenever she can!
