Anna Haensch, blog contributor, is an assistant professor at Duquesne University. She was born in Germany, grew up in Vermont, and received her PhD from Wesleyan University in May 2013. In the summer after completing her degree, she received the AAAS Mass Media Fellowship, sponsored by the AMS. As a fellow, she spent 10 weeks on the science desk at National Public Radio in Washington, D.C. where she worked on the math angle of health and science stories for the radio and NPR online. Anna is very interested in finding lively and entertaining ways to express the depth and beauty of mathematics to mathematicians, non-mathematicians, and even the math-phobic. When she’s not doing or communicating math, she’s exercising her other passion: running.
Evelyn Lamb is a postdoc at the University of Utah. Her research interests are harmonic maps and higher Teichmüller theory.

Brie Finegold works at Rincon Research in Tucson, AZ and is co-organizer of Women Advancing Arizona Mathematics, which will put on a SK Day and weekly colloquial by women in math. She also manages a small tutoring company in Tucson. Brie’s research interests include geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology. She was an AAAS-AMS Mass Media Fellow in 2006 and continues to enjoy writing about math. She blogs on her own occasionally at Mathematically Speaking.
