Professor of Mathematics

Dr. Mallenby's publications are diverse and range from effective teaching methods in mathematics, and the use of fuzzy math in ranking political stable countries, to the historical origins of square dancing, and an overview of the U.S. Healthcare System published in a Soviet newspaper.

As a consequence of Dr. Mallenby's resesarch into the most cost-effective provision of healthcare to the medically indigent of Nebraska, she gave testimony at legislative hearings and was invited to speak at a national conference on Healthcare Provision to the Poor and Underserved, 1992.

Dr. Mallenby taught a class for Creighton's Arete program on the historical King Arthur, 2006, and on the effects of television on society, 1997.

For her undergraduate physics research, Dr. Mallenby wrote the computer program used to analyze thin films through ellipsometry.  The film was developing on cameras on board moonbound space craft.
