Former Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Ph.D., Oregon State University M.S., University of Washington B.A., Reed College, Oregon firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Donally taught at UAA from 1984 to 199_. He has also taught at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, at Alaska Pacific University, for the Alaska Federation of Natives, and for the National Council on Aging in Anchorage. Dr. Donally had served UAA on the University Assembly and the Grievance Committee. He also served as chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences Committee for Lectures to Anchorage Schools and has tutored local engineers for the engineer-in-training examinations. He has also been a member of the American Physical Society and the Mathematical Association of America. Dr. Donally has concentrated his research on the mathematics of relativity theory and was the recipient of a grant from the President's Special Projects Fund to host Professor Henry Hill, a solar astronomer from the physics department of the University of Arizona, for a lecture series at UAA. Dr. Donally has always been interested in the mathematics of geodesic domes, which he builds as a hobby, and presented a paper to the spring 1990 meeting of the Mathematics Association of America in Portland, Oregon entitled Generalizing Spherical Geodesic Domes.
