B.S. East Stroudsburg (PA) University
Professor Doty has co-authored research articles with Frank Harary (thereby achieving Erdos number 2) and Derek Smith of the University of Glamorgan (Wales). During sabbatical leaves she worked at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia and with a colleague at Bloomsburg (PA) University. She often teaches an introductory networks and graph theory course ( sometimes coupled with a college writing course) that seeks to embed mathematics in a larger intellectual and cultural context.
Professor Doty's specialization is in discrete mathematics and combinatorics. Most of her research work has focused on establishing theoretical bounds describing the ability of a communication network to survive local failures.
