Professor Poimenidou is an algebraist whose research interests are in the areas of group theory and algebraic combinatorics. She enjoys teaching the Abstract Algebra sequence, Graph Theory, Linear Algebra, Number Theory, and Gems of Mathematics.

A strong proponent of the power of mathematics, she wants to encourage mathphobes to take a math class at New College. She enjoys origami, photography, and exploring visual mathematics.
