### Biography

Ayse Sharland is an Associate Teaching Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Applied Sciences. She received her PhD degree in Pure Mathematics at the University of Warwick (UK) in 2011. Her research area is Singularity Theory which is a broad area of Mathematics that naturally interacts with many other branches including Local Analytic Geometry, Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Topology and Combinatorial Theory. She has published research papers on finite determinacy of holomorphic map-germs, geometry and topology of the images, normal surface singularities and computational aspects. She has taught several gen-ed courses ranging from Precalculus to Calculus III as well as Introduction to Math Rigor (Undergraduate Math) and Algebra I (Graduate Math) courses at URI. She is also co-advising a PhD student towards a degree in Pure Mathematics.
