Dr. Elena Marchisotto became a tenure-track Assistant Professor in 1984, and subsequently received tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 1988, and promotion to Professor in 1991. A popular and enthusiastic teacher, Elena designed several courses for the Mathematics Department and served for many years as the (original) Director of Developmental Mathematics. She has directed nine Master's students whose work was based on her own research. Elena is a leading expert on the 19th century mathematician, Mario Pieri, and she has published numerous articles in scholarly journals, has written chapters in several texts, and has presented her work at many conferences. Much of Elena's research required translating Pieri's works from Italian. In April 2017, Elena presented in the Special Session on History of Mathematics at the Association for Women in Mathematics fourth biennial research symposium at UCLA. She has had a successful career as an educator and scholar and has brought prestige to CSUN.
