Dr. Tracy Weyand's research has been in the areas of analysis and mathematical physics, specializing in spectral graph theory. Her interests include the spectra of operators acting on both discrete and metric graphs, as well as properties of the corresponding eigenfunctions. Before joining Rose-Hulman in 2017, Dr. Weyand taught mathematics courses at Baylor University as a Post Doctoral Associate. She has many publications to her credit as well as several academic awards.
