Carolyn Yarnall

Postdoctoral Scholar

About Me

I am a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Kentucky. I received my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Virginia and afterward spent two years as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wabash College.

When I'm not teaching or doing mathematics, I like to spend my free time traveling, playing disc golf, and irish dancing.

Please see my CV for more details.

Office Hours: By Appointment


My primary research is in the area of homotopy theory. More specifically, I study the equivariant slice filtration. I am also working on a project involving differential graded algebras as a part of the Women in Topology program. In a different vein, I am currently working on a project in voting theory with some collaborators from an AMS Mathematical Research Community.

Currently, I am teaching MA 352: Elementary Topology II.
