Patricia Sipe’s fields of interest include complex analysis, Teichmuller spaces, mathematical biology, mathematics education, women’s studies and Andean flute music.

Sipe spent 1987–88 in Chile as a Fulbright professor and now enjoys conversations—mathematical and otherwise—in Spanish. She also has a special interest in mathematical issues in statistics. She pursued them on sabbatical as a fellow at the Bunting Institute of Radcliffe College.
