Kathleen Hinge joined the Dominican College faculty after a 20-year engineering career, emphasizing mathematical modeling and computer simulation of the structural behavior of machine elements and systems. She has published patent applications and received an NSF fellowship. By virtue of her corporate engineering experience, she is role model and mentor to students pursuing the Pre-Engineering Option in Mathematics (the 5-year sequence that leads to a BA in Mathematics from Dominican College and a BE in Engineering from Manhattan College).
Professor Hinge teaches General Physics (I, II and III), where she emphasizes hands-on laboratory work to engage students actively in the discovery and understanding of physical phenomena. She also teaches multiple courses in Mathematics, including MA 113 College Algebra and MA 229P Mathematical Universe.
Her non-academic interests include running (she completed the 2003 NYC Marathon) and yoga (she is a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher).
