About Dr. Conley

I have been teaching at Saint Peter’s University since 2016. I enjoy teaching probability, statistics, and algebra. My research interests include numerical analysis, especially the finite element method.

“My teaching philosophy is that students learn by doing. I try to incorporate active learning into every class meeting. Some days we go to the computer lab so students can use technology to run statistical tests.”
