Christine Kelley is an Associate Professor in the
Department of Mathematics
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
. She received
her Ph.D. in math from the University of Notre Dame
in 2006 under the
supervision of Joachim Rosenthal
. Before coming to Nebraska, she was a
Postdoctoral Fellow at the Fields Institute in Toronto
, and in the Department of
Mathematics at The Ohio State University
Dr. Kelley's research is in coding theory, applied discrete
mathematics, and applied algebra. One emphasis is on graph-based codes
and algorithms, and the design and analysis of such codes using
algebraic methods. Another research interest is in applying algebraic
and combinatorial methods to coding applications such as flash memory
storage, data streaming, and communication networks. Her research has
been supported by an NSA Young Investigator grant (Spring 2011-Fall
2013) and by an NSF EPSCoR First Award (2009-2010).
In Spring 2010,
Dr. Kelley received the University of Nebraska's Harold and Esther Edgerton
Junior Faculty Award
for "creative research, extraordinary teaching abilities, and academic
promise", and she was the Harold and Esther Edgerton Assistant
Professor from 2010-2012. In Spring 2012, Dr. Kelley received a College of Arts and Sciences' Distinguished Teaching Award.
She is currently supervising two Ph.D.
students and has gradutated one Ph.D. student and supervised several undergraduate research students. Among other activities,
she was a Mathematical Association of America Project NExT Fellow
in 2008-2009 (New Experiences in Teaching). Dr. Kelley is currently a co-chair for the Nebraska Conference
for Undergraduate Women in Math.
