    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).

    Dr. Hinge teaches General Physics (I and II), 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.  In 2015, Dr. Hinge became the Science Department Coordinator. In 2016, Dr. Hinge was appointed an adjunct engineering faculty member at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy (www.johncabot.edu) where she teaches Statics and Mechanics of Materials during the summer.

    Her non-academic interests include reading, spinning and yoga (not at the same time!).

        B.S. – Virginia Tech (Mathematics)
        M.A. – Virginia Tech (Education)
        Ph.D. – Teachers College, Columbia University (Mathematics Education)

        Dr. Lydia Maynard joined the mathematics department at Dominican College in 2012 after earning her doctorate in Mathematics Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. During the time she was working on her degree, she worked as an adjunct instructor in Manhattan at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Fashion Institute of Technology. 

         Beyond the classroom, Dr. Maynard’s interests include community service and music. She has traveled to Honduras, Bolivia, Costa Rica and Mexico to volunteer with local groups. She has also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity on two separate occasions — to Philadelphia and Baltimore, to help construct affordable housing for families in need. She has also volunteered with Dominican College students to go on Midnight Runs to bring food to the homeless on the streets of Manhattan. She also directs the a capella group on campus, Pitches and Cream. The group has performed at various school events, a Rockland Boulders game and even at a Mets game at Citifield.

            Professor Mulligan has been a full-time faculty member in the Mathematics department since 2002. She came to the college from the corporate world.

            After graduating from the University of Scranton with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Magna cum laude, she worked at Bellcore (now Ericsson Technologies) for 12 years. As a Member of Technical Staff, she worked in the software division supporting outside plant engineers in the various telephone companies. She went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Mathematics from Seton Hall University, graduating with honors.  

            Professor Mulligan began at Dominican College as an adjunct instructor in January 1990 teaching Statistics in the Weekend College Program. She then taught the basic Math sequence in the ACCEL program for many years.

            In addition to her degrees, Professor Mulligan holds NYS Teacher Certification for grades 7-12. She has been both a middle school and high school substitute teacher and taught as a long-term substitute for 5th grade and Advanced Math for eighth graders.
