MEd, Grand Canyon University; BS in Mathematics and Psychology, University of Arizona
Francie Bostwick joined the Mathematics Department in 2009. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Psychology from the University of Arizona and earned her Master’s Degree in Education from Grand Canyon University. She taught middle school mathematics for 15 years and has worked as a mathematics specialist for school districts for 6 years. Her work is focused on deepening teacher content knowledge and developing effective pedagogical strategies. She has been actively involved in the Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics and in supporting teachers throughout her career.
PhD in Mathematics, Washington State University; MS in Mathematics, Washington State University; BS in Mathematics, Gonzaga University
Dr. Ciasullo teaches Calculus, Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations as well as Real and Complex Analysis. Her academic interests lie in Applied Analysis and Approximation Theory. She received Southern Oregon University’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2017.
Professor and STEM Division Director
PhD in Mathematics, University of Oregon; MS in Mathematics, University of Oregon; BA in Mathematics, Westmont College
Dr. Ettlich is currently a full-time administrator overseeing programs in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Education, and Mathematics. However, her love of teaching, working with undergraduates, and mathematics is nurtured by continuing to teaching the abstract algebra sequence, normally taken by majors in the winter and spring of their junior year. When she was active in the faculty, she also was heavily involved in mathematics education and continues to follow developments on how students of all ages learn.
Professor and Mathematics Program Chair
PhD in Mathematics, University of California at Davis; MS in Mathematics, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo; BS in Mathematics, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Dr. Feist teaches a wide variety of mathematics courses, including pre-Calculus, Calculus I-IV, Linear Algebra, Number Structures/Intro to proofs, and advanced topics in Analysis/Topology. His research interests are based on presenting advanced mathematical ideas to a general audience in meaningful and entertaining ways.
PhD in Mathematics, University of Oregon; MS in Mathematics, Indiana University; BS in Mathematics, Sogang University
After moving to the United States from South Korea in 1988, Dr. Kim studied mathematics and statistics at Indiana University and University of Oregon. He taught statistics at University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Willamette University, before settling in Ashland to teach at SOU. When the Mathematics Department had a master’s program, he taught a variety of graduate level courses such as Financial Mathematics, Life Insurance, Non-Life Insurance, and Multivariate Statistical Analysis. Currently, he teaches all levels of statistics and calculus topics. His recent research has been about signal processing with focus on sound and image processing. When he was younger, he was a serious soccer and tennis player, but now he is a swimmer. He loves cooking and dishwashing.
PhD in Mathematics, University of Idaho; MS in Mathematics, University of Idaho; BS in Electrical Engineering, Northern Arizona University
Dr. Sabo enjoys teaching mathematics classes for all undergraduate students. Two of his favorite classes are Contemporary Mathematics and Topics in Foundations and Geometry. His research interests include Combinatorics and Disjunctive Rado numbers.
MS in General Studies: Science/Mathematics, Southern Oregon University; BS in General Studies: Science/Mathematics, Southern Oregon University
Larry Shrewsbury has been implementing the use of “flipped-classrooms” (homework done in-class, with movies and reading outside of class), in-class activities, and has adopted an open-source textbook (i.e. free). He is currently working on helping students apply the research-validate effective study techniques. Since 1995 his favorite class to teach is MTH 243 (Intro to Statistical Methods).
MS in Mathematics, University of Oregon; MA in Economics, University of California at Santa Barbara; BA in Business Economics, University of California at Santa Barbara
Brian Stonelake teaches a variety of undergraduate mathematics classes including calculus, precalculus and statistics. He is actively researching geometric projections of the sphere and collaborates with the SF 49ers on analytical decision-making.
MAT in Secondary Mathematics, Southern Oregon University; BS in Mathematics, Southern Oregon University
Lisa Wileman joined the Mathematics Department in 2016. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Master of Arts Degree in Teaching from Southern Oregon University. She taught mathematics to middle and high school students for 16 years in the Rogue Valley, during which time she also fostered her interests in areas such as technology in the classroom, instructional materials, increasing confidence in math, connecting math to real life and thinking deeply about the standards. Lisa loves to think about and try new ways to help everyone find their inner mathematician and what a purposeful classroom with an effective teacher looks like. She loves to collaborate and work in any capacity with both pre-service and in-service teachers.
PhD in Mathematics, Washington State University; MS in Mathematics, Washington State University; BS in Mathematics and Economics, University of Puget Sound
Dr. Yates is an applied mathematician who received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Washington State University in 1987. His research interests include mathematically modeling pattern formation in embryos, star formation in interstellar gas clouds, and machine learning. He loves teaching all levels of mathematics and has actively incorporated technology and software into his courses. He also enjoys amateur astronomy, duplicate bridge and seeing live music.
