Shira Viel, Assistant Professor of the Practice

Shira Viel

I am an Assistant Professor of the Practice of Mathematics at Duke University where I focus primarily on the Calculus sequence through teaching, research, coordination, and curriculum development. My current research interests include graduate student professional development, alternative grading methods, and students’ sense of community.

Are you a woman or non-binary undergraduate student interested in pursuing a graduate degree in the mathematical sciences? Check out GROW, which I am helping to host at Duke in Fall 2022 and Fall 2023!
