Who are we, you ask? We're Angela and Dorea Vierling-Claassen, two carfree mathematicians who have a daughter H (born 6/06) and a son R (born 5/09). We've been happily carfree since our truck died in 2004. Oh, and in case the names aren't a complete tip-off, we're also lesbians.
Dorea works on mathematical modeling in neuroscience at MIT and MGH. Angela teaches mathematics at Lesley University and works on using game theory to model the division of labor in parenting.
Our other passions include talking a lot about almost everything, knitting (Dorea), reading (Angela), pretending to give people raisins (H) and laughing at his big sister (R). We live in North Cambridge, are members of Havurat Shalom, get veggies from Parker Farm, get our groceries at the Market Basket and lug them home in our Xtracycle.
