As graduate students, we interact with a wide variety of people: local communities, students, peers, and professors. Within these interactions, there is great diversity: different backgrounds, experiences, and cultures. I believe this is something that makes our mathematical community vibrant … Continue reading
There are certain moments from grad school that will always stick with me: the conference in Boston where my usually quiet lab mate opened up to me; the nights I spent drinking cheap beer with my closest friends in the … Continue reading
The AMS Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) is an NSF-funded program to help graduate students and postdocs jumpstart their careers. Every summer the AMS runs three sessions, each on a specific subject. Budding researchers in that area work intensively with each … Continue reading
The 2010’s are a Golden Age for packing problems. In 2014, Hales announced the long-awaited completion of a high-profile machine proof project called FlySpeck, which verified his proof of Kepler’s conjecture. Johannes Kepler, in 1600, conjectured that the densest way to pack … Continue reading
