Dr. Anna Stokke's Website


Dr. Anna Stokke grew up in Manitoba and received a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Alberta. Her research area is in algebra (group representation theory) and algebraic combinatorics.  She has supervised numerous students in undergraduate research positions since she started working at the University of Winnipeg.  

Dr. Stokke is also an advocate for strong math education for Canadian children; she has given over 100 media interviews on the topic and has written numerous editorials for both local and national newspapers.  She co-founded an advocacy group WISE Math and is President and co-founder of the non-profit organization, Archimedes Math Schools.
