Mia Heissan has been a member of the Manhattanville Faculty since 2013. Dr. Heissan received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Rhode Island. Her research interests include graph theory and combinatorics, specifically graph representations, graph colorings, and combinatorial games. Graph theory is the study of mathematical objects (graphs) which consist of vertices (or nodes) connected by edges (or arcs.) If one wishes to examine a problem which entails a network of connected discrete structure, this is a graph theory problem. These problems frequently arise in computer science, and often graph theory is thought to be the theoretical math underlying computer science. It is only natural that Dr. Heissan also teaches not only in the mathematics program but in the computer science program as well. In her spare time, Mia enjoys playing competitive pickleball, hiking, camping, and cycling as well as spending time with her family in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Missouri.
