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 and applied discrete mathematics. 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 for flash memory storage. 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 one Ph.D. student and has 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.
