"When you inhale and when you exhale
breathe the possibility of another world
into the 37.2 trillion cells of your body
until it shines with hope.
Then imagine more."
---Aurora Levins Morales

Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Laura K. Gross, professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at Bridgewater State University (BSU), part of the state-university system in Massachusetts. Send me e-mail at laura dot gross at bridgew dot edu or profgross at gmail dot com, or call me at 508 531-2391.

In fall 2021, I am teaching Analysis of Algorithms (COMP 435) and Programming for Mathematics Educators (COMP 145).

Other classes I have taught at BSU include Programming and Computer Algebra (COMP 150), Computer Science I (COMP 151), Computer Science II (COMP 152), Data Structures and Algorithms (COMP 250), Elementary Statistics I (MATH 110), Elements of Precalculus (MATH 140), Precalculus with Trigonometry (MATH 150), Calculus I (MATH 151), Single Variable Calculus II (MATH 162), Calculus III (MATH 251), Applied Calculus for Business (MATH 144), Differential Equations (MATH 316), Introduction to Analysis I (MATH 401), Applied Mathematics (MATH 416), and Honors in Action (INTD 151). In MATH 416 I taught mathematical writing in an upper-level elective. I have also taught linear algebra, algebra with business applications, mathematics for liberal arts, and Advanced Engineering Mathematics I and II at The University of Akron.

My research interests involve modeling a variety of physical systems using differential equations. I apply analytical and numerical techniques to study nonlinear dynamics, especially of reaction-diffusion equations, free-boundary-value problems, and dynamical systems. I am also interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning of mathematics and computer science. Here is a list of my publications.

Check out local activities in southeastern Massachusetts.

Thank you for visiting, and have a nice day.
