Dr. Karen Meagher
I am an associate professor in the
Mathematics and Statistics
at the University of Regina.
Unitl July 2018, I am also the Acting Associate Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies
Most of my research is focused on
the Erdos-Ko-Rado theorem. This involves generaliztions and extensions
of this theorem using a variety of methods. I am also interested in
design theory, including constructions and bounds of covering
arrays. I work on extremal set theory and I am interested in extensions
of results in extremal set theory to partitions and permutations. I
have worked on applying methods from algebraic graph theory to
design theory problems. I have also done work on covering arrays,
zero-forcing sets for graphs, inverse eigenvalue-type problems and
metric dimension of graphs.
