Margaret Readdy is a Professor of Mathematics.  Her research area is algebraic combinatorics, especially interactions with topology and geometry.

After receiving her PhD in Mathematics, Readdy held a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Montréal at Laboratoire de Combinatoire et d'Informatique Mathématiques  (LACIM) at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and was a three-year Visiting Assistant Professor at Cornell University.  In 1998-1999 Readdy was a Visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and the following year she held a Visiting Professorship at Stockholm University. Readdy joined the University of Kentucky faculty in Fall 2000.

Readdy was a Visiting Professor in Applied Mathematics at MIT in 2006--2007 and was a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 2010--2011.  Most recently, in 2014--2015 Readdy was a Visiting Professor and Research Scholar in the Princeton University Mathematics Department.

Readdy's research is supported by a five year Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant.  This is the second such grant the Simons Foundation has awarded her.
