B.A., Boston University
M.A., University of California, Berkeley
Rebecca Hehn joined the Mathematics Department in Fall 2019. She attended Boston University as an undergrad, and The University of California, Berkeley, for graduate school, where she studied Biostatistics. Upon graduation, she worked right down the street from Emmanuel, at Boston Children’s Hospital, where she worked as a Biostatistician and collaborated with MDs to publish several medical papers. Following her time at Boston Children’s, she moved to New York City and worked as an Associate Research Scientist at New York University before ultimately joining the Statistics Faculty at The University of Virginia, where she taught Biostatistics for 3 years. Originally from Massachusetts, she transitioned back to the Boston area and began teaching at Emmanuel College.
What I Love about Emmanuel:
Some of the many reasons she loves teaching at Emmanuel are the inquisitive students, the wonderful faculty in the Mathematics Department, and the small class sizes, which facilitate getting to provide students with more personalized attention. While her main focus here is teaching Statistics classes, she also teaches College Algebra.
