In the summer of 2007, while working on her degree, Adriana was the AMS-AAAS Mass Media Fellow. She worked at Voice of America for ten weeks under the sponsorship of the AMS and filed several stories about mathematics. Adriana was also a writer for the PhD + epsilon blog, about the experiences and challenges of an early-career mathematician. Evelyn Lamb Evelyn Lamb is a postdoc at the University of Utah. Her research interests are harmonic maps and higher Teichmüller theory. She has a Ph.D. in math from Rice University, and during her time in graduate school Evelyn was an AMS-AAAS Mass Media Fellow at Scientific American. She still blogs for them at Roots of Unity. Beth Malmskog Beth Malmskog is an assistant professor at Villanova University. Her research interests are in number theory, combinatorics, and arithmetic geometry, and applications to cryptography and coding theory. Beth is originally from Wyoming, and received her PhD in 2011 from Colorado State University. She also writes for PhD + epsilon, an AMS blog about early career issues.
