Shira Viel, Assistant Professor of the Practice
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.
