Research:

In addition to her regular teaching duties, Deborah Brandon is the teaching assistant (TA) supervisor for the Department of Mathematical Sciences. In this capacity, she runs a TA training workshop, as well as an international TA training workshop (for incoming international graduate students who need to pass an English language test before they become TAs). She is also the director of the SUAMI (Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute)--an annual outreach program of the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
