Graduate Student in Mathematics
ZONIA KARINA MENENDEZ INFO
I'm a PhD candidate in the mathematics department of Wesleyan University under the supervision of Christopher Rasmussen. I received my bachelors in science, majoring in mathematics, at the College of New Jersey.
Other than math and teaching I spend some free time:
taking pictures, but usually things nature related --especially sunsets (and sunrises if I'm lucky)
being creative, whether it's singing, drawing, dot journaling, or drumming
getting spooked especially in the form of watching scary movies and shows
spending time with loved ones. 💕
Math Workshop tutor through the math department at Wesleyan Department.
Instructor at Wesleyan University for MATH 120: Elements of Calculus, Part II.
Instructor at Wesleyan University for MATH 119: Elements of Calculus, Part I. This class is intended for students who have not seen Calculus previously.
Teaching is my main passion, as well as, being an ally to students especially those who are underrepresented. I am very eager to utilize and find ways to make my classroom a welcoming and supportive environment for all. If you have any tips or suggestions please contact me below.
I am a fifth year graduate student currently pursuing my PhD at Wesleyan University in mathematics under the supervision of Chris Rasmussen.
My research interests include Arithmetic Geometry, more specifically I am studying non cuspidal, non-CM sporadic points on the modular curves X_0(n) and X_1(M, MN).
