Susan Colley, Editor-Elect of the American Mathematical Monthly

“What I love about mathematics is that it’s not that any technique really ever gets thrown out, it’s that you just keep adding on to those techniques,” says Andrew and Pauline Delaney Professor of Mathematics Susan Colley. “What’s wonderful to me is that even if something becomes less fashionable, it has a way of coming back.” Colley has reduced her teaching commitments this semester as she takes on more responsibility as editor-elect of the American Mathematical Monthly, the flagship journal of the Mathematical Association of America. Read about her election as editor on the News Center.
