About Wiebke Diestelkamp

"I enjoy teaching mathematics tremendously, and I love the variety of classes I am teaching here at UD. The classes range from calculus to undergraduate classes in probability/statistics for math majors, statistics for engineers and statistics for non-science majors. I have also taught all our graduate courses in statistics, and I have developed a graduate course in time series for our Master in Financial Mathematics program. I like to try different things in my classes - such as the use of technology, group projects etc.
I have been involved in organizing the department's annual Math Events, which are geared towards students interested in and excited about mathematics. Math Events have been held every fall since 2002. In 2002 and 2004, we held Conversations among Women in Mathematics. In the odd-numbered years, we organize Undergraduate Mathematics Day, an undergraduate student conference celebrating all aspects of mathematics."
Dr. Diestelkamp was born in Germany and received her undergraduate degree in mathematics from the Georg-August Universität Göttingen and attended graduate school at the Universität Ulm. After moving to the United States, she received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. Dr. Diestelkamp joined the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Dayton in 1998.
