Dr. Pamela E. Harris earned her B.S. in mathematics from Marquette University, and M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Her research interests are in algebra and combinatorics, particularly as these subjects relate to the representation theory of Lie algebras. Her recent research on vector partition functions and projects in graph theory have been supported through awards from the National Science Foundation and the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics. Dr. Harris co-organizes research symposia and professional development sessions for the national conference of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), was an MAA Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) Fellow from 2012-2013, and is an editor of the e-Mentoring Network blog of the American Mathematical Society. In 2016, she helped develop and create the website www.Lathisms.org an online platform that features prominently the extent of the research and mentoring contributions of Latin@s and Hispanics in the Mathematical Sciences. Dr. Harris has an 11-year old daughter named Akira, three dogs Scottie, Bubba, and Ginger, and one extremely supportive husband named Jamual.
