Scholarly and Creative Work

Friedman enjoys working with colleagues in her department on research projects. These collaborations have been quite fruitful and have resulted in a series of published papers on achievable and unachievable hierarchies in voting systems, and a paper on an application of linear algebra to biology.  As part of her work in biostatistics, Friedman is developing a method for testing for the existence of a change point. 

Teaching Interests

Friedman has taught a wide range of undergraduate mathematics courses, including lower division courses and core classes and upper division courses for majors.  Friedman also enjoys working one-on-one with students on individual projects.
