Roxanne has earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Chemistry with honors, a Post Graduate Diploma in Mathematics Education, and a Master of Science degree in Mathematics with Distinction, all from the University of the West Indies. Apart from her life’s work in academia, she is a sociable person who loves to have fun and create memories with the people she loves.
