Marissa Kawehi Loving


I am a mathematics PhD candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and am currently supported by an Illinois Graduate College Distinguished Fellowship.

I will graduate with my PhD in May 2019 and am currently on the job market.

I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo in 2013 with a B.A. in mathematics and a B.S. in computer science. For a more in depth history of my past academic pursuits, feel free to peruse my CV.

I am originally from Hawai'i (and soon will be the first native Hawaiian woman to earn a PhD in mathematics), but found myself transplanted to the Midwest for the love of math and the lack of graduate programs in the middle of the Pacific. You can find my latest travels under my "Where to find me" tab.
