Margaret Niehaus


B.A. Oxford University
M.A., Ph.D. Harvard University

Areas of expertise:


Margaret has taught at Gordon since 2000, in both the Economics and Business and the Mathematics and Computer Science Departments. She trained as an applied mathematician and initially worked in the field of geophysical fluid dynamics. This included analytical modeling of the large-scale motion of the midlatitude atmosphere, and numerical modeling of fine-structure in the upper ocean. Her positive experience as a teaching assistant at Harvard and as a professor at Simmons College encouraged her to make teaching, rather than research, a priority. After a period working full-time as a home-schooling mother she returned part-time to academia, and now enjoys teaching mathematics-related subjects to a variety of students at a variety of local colleges.
