Her main area of research is analysis. Recently, she has been
interested in fractal geometry and its basis in analysis, and she has directed
several undergraduate research projects in this area. She has enjoyed
professional leaves at the
She participated in the NSF funded REU site "Algebra, Number Theory and Applications" which ran during the summers of 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Professor Palagallo started the Women in Mathematics program, originally sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and the Tensor Foundation. A goal of this project is to retain more women mathematics students at all levels, from undergraduate through graduate, and to provide them with a strong network of support. This program is generously supported by graduates of the Department of Mathematics. For her work with this program, Professor Palagallo was awarded the Mortarboard Pioneer Award in 2001.
Professor Palagallo is also active in the Ohio Section of the Mathematical Association of America and has been President, Program Chair and chair of the Committee on Student Members. She served as Ohio Governor 2006-2009.
For six years, Professor Palagallo was a member of the committee Research by
Undergraduate Students (a subcommittee of the Council on Undergraduate Programs
in Mathematics). As a member of this committee, she organized the Student
Poster Session for Research by Undergraduates at the AMS/MAA meetings in
She was a member of the board of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences from 2007-2015.
