Brooke Shipley: 2007 Jean Rubin talk


Dr. Shipley is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she is head of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science.  Her research concerns homotopy theory and homological algebra.

She earned her Ph.D. in 1995 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Haynes Miller, for her work on the convergence of the homology spectral sequence of a cosimplicial space.

Shipley then was awarded a NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. After postdoctoral studies at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Chicago, she joined the faculty of Purdue University in 1998 and earned tenure there in 2002.  She then moved to University of Illinois at Chicago in 2003.

In 2009, Shipley became Co-Principal Investigator on UIC's National Science Foundation's ADVANCE grant to support the Women in Science and Engineering System Transformation (WISEST) program. She served as the director of WISEST from 2012 to 2013.

In 2014, she was elected as a fellow of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to homotopy theory and homological algebra as well as for service to the mathematical community." Then in 2016, she became a representative of the Committee of Academic Sponsors at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
