Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Statistics
Dr. Flavia Sancier is an applied mathematician who specializes in probability theory and stochastic processes. She is interested in modeling random phenomena in areas that include finance, social dynamics, population growth and disease spread. Flavia teaches statistics courses and Quantitative Seminars that share themes with Antioch’s Global Seminars in Water, Health, Education, Food, Governance and Energy. Prior to joining Antioch College, Flavia was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wittenberg University in Springfield, OH, where she taught computational and applied math courses.
