Dr. Carmen Wright is a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Jackson State University. She obtained her doctorate from The University of Iowa and her research area is in the field of representation theory. She teaches abstract algebra and has been exploring genome science to introduce undergraduate students to some interesting applications of group theory and some of the traditional abstract theories of abstract and linear algebra.

In addition, she has a special interest in increasing the participation of under-represented groups in the field of mathematics, noting the critical importance of doing research at the undergraduate level.
