Lathisms was founded in 2016 to showcase the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians, especially during Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated in the United States from September 15 and October 15 every year. The featured mathematician for September 27, 2021, is Andrés Caicedo, an Associate Editor at Mathematical Reviews. The link to their profile of Andrés is here. The profile is also available as a poster.
Those of us at the AMS know and appreciate Andrés’s many talents. He is a wonderful colleague. It is great to see him recognized. Moreover, because Andrés moved from a university faculty position to working as an editor at Mathematical Reviews, the profile puts a spotlight on the many different ways in which Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians have careers that advance research and support mathematics as a profession. Bravo Andrés! Bravo Lathisms!
