T. Christine Stevens is Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Saint Louis University. A graduate of Smith College, she earned her Ph.D. in mathematics at Harvard University. Her research interests are in topological groups, especially Lie groups, and in the history of mathematics. She has also published papers on issues in mathematics education, and she is the director of Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching), a professional development program for new and recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. In 1984-85, Dr. Stevens was the AMS/MAA/SIAM Congressional Science Fellow. In this capacity, she worked as a legislative assistant to Congressman Ted Weiss of New York on issues involving defense, arms control, education, and science and technology. This experience convinced her of the utility of mathematical skills in discussions of public policy. From 1987 to 1989, she was a program officer for precollege and undergraduate mathematics education at the National Science Foundation. Dr. Stevens has served on SIAM committees dealing with science policy and education, and she has chaired the MAA Committee on Science Policy.
