About Us

Dr. Marie Nabbout-Cheiban (Chair) Dr. Nabbout-Cheiban is an assistant Professor of Mathematics Education with a research background and experience in using dynamic software in the teaching of mathematics. She has conducted workshops and developed and presented inquiry-based activities in local conferences. She will develop activities and materials for high school Geometry and Algebra and conduct workshops using GeoGebra. She will coach the activity of the GeoGebra Institute of Connecticut and serve as a chair.
Dr. Therese Bennett Dr. Bennett is a full Professor of Mathematics with experience in designing projects and labs using different Computer Algebra Systems for Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and all levels of Calculus. She will work on developing materials using CAS and give related workshops at the Geogebra Institute for college-level mathematics courses.
Dr. Leon Brin Dr. Brin is a Full Professor of Mathematics with a long history of supporting and using open source mathematical software. He will help organize and deliver workshops at the GeoGebra Institute of Connecticut and produce materials with a focus on algebra and calculus for the high school and college level.
Dr. Braxton Carrigan Dr. Carrigan is an assistant Professor of Mathematics with a research background in Computational and Discrete Geometry and experience in secondary education and teacher training. He will develop activities in Algebra and Geometry for undergraduate college courses and high school secondary courses and give workshops at the Connecticut GeoGebra Institute.
Dr. Valeriu Pinciu Dr. Pincu is a full Professor of Mathematics. His current research focuses on the application of combinatorics and graph theory to problems in computational geometry. He will develop class materials useful in Discrete Mathematics and Geometry courses at the College level, and will conduct workshops at the GeoGebra Institute in Connecticut for college professors.
Dr. Robert Vaden-Goad Dr. Vaden-Goad is an associate Professor of Mathematics with a research background in Geometric Topology. He has taught geometry using technological tools for student investigation at both undergraduate and graduate levels for many years. In addition, he has been doing classroom based investigations and research for nearly twenty years. He will develop material for high school and college level Geometry and do research on GeoGebra.
