Michelle LeMasurier recently published “Topological Conjugacy for a Class of Substitution Minimal Sets,” with Ethan Coven, Andrew Dykstra and Mike Keane, in Indagationes Mathematicae and “A Simple Proof of a Theorem of Cobham,” with Andrew Dykstra and Ethan Coven, in the Rocky Mountain Journal of Mathematics. In 2006, LeMasurier received The Class of 1963 Excellence in Teaching Award, which was established in 1988 to recognize one Hamilton faculty member each year who demonstrates extraordinary commitment to teaching. She received her doctorate from the University of Georgia and joined the Hamilton faculty in 2001.
