Anna Haensch

Anna Haensch, blog contributor, is an assistant professor at Duquesne University. She was born in Germany, grew up in Vermont, and received her PhD from Wesleyan University in May 2013. In the summer after completing her degree, she received the AAAS Mass Media Fellowship, sponsored by the AMS. As a fellow, she spent 10 weeks on the science desk at National Public Radio in Washington, D.C. where she worked on the math angle of health and science stories for the radio and NPR online. Anna is very interested in finding lively and entertaining ways to express the depth and beauty of mathematics to mathematicians, non-mathematicians, and even the math-phobic. When she’s not doing or communicating math, she’s exercising her other passion: running.
