Kathleen Hinge joined the Dominican University 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 University 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!).
