About Me

Thanks for visiting!

My name is Kimberly Ayers, and I am an assistant professor of mathematics at Cal State San Marcos. Prior to joining San Marcos, I held positions at Carroll College in Helena, MT, and Pomona College, in Claremont, CA. I got my Ph.D. in mathematics from Iowa State University in 2015. I also have a B.A. from Bowdoin College.

My research is in dynamical systems. I'm interested in hybrid dynamical systems, which are systems that exhibit both continuous and discrete behavior. I'm interested in generalizing limit and recurrence concepts from classical dynamics and control theory to these types of systems.

I believe in the following axioms written by Professor Federico Ardila at San Francisco State University:

  • Axiom 1. Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

  • Axiom 2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

  • Axiom 3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

  • Axiom 4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
