Alexia Sontag
Professor of Mathematics, Emeritus

Professor Sontag taught Mathematics at Wellesley from 1975-2010.


Professor Sontag's research interests are in complex analysis, especially quasiconformal mappings (mappings of bounded distortion) and geometric aspects of complex function theory, but she is also interested in real analysis, especially those topics that are accessible to undergraduates.
