This weekend I’ll be in Nebraska (for the first time) for the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics. I’m happy to be attending this event as an invited graduate student, as several of my friends in grad school benefitted from it as undergraduates!
University of Washington
Offices: PDL C-404 & CSE2 351
Before coming to UW, I earned my B.S. from Carnegie Mellon University and then my M.S. from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Heading to Baltimore this week for the AMS short course on Sum of Squares. While I’m in the city, I’ll also be visiting the theory group at Johns Hopkins for a day.
I’m continuing to work with FEPPS this summer as an instructor for Math 107, Math in Society. The course samples from a collection of topics like set theory, algebra, finances, and even math history.
Today I start volunteering with FEPPS, the Freedom Education Project for the Puget Sound. I’ll be at the Washinton Corrections Center for Women on Saturday mornings to tutor in study halls for women enrolled in FEPPS’s math courses.
I received the McKibben and Merner Endowed Fellowship in Mathematics for my performance on my preliminary exams and first year courses.
I’m relieved to say that I passed my prelim exams!
Big thanks to my friends in the math department for their collaboration and to my first year professors for their support and availability.
I’ve studied generalizations of the trace reconstruction problem on trees. I’m interested in exploring similar statistical reconstruction problems.
Finding perfect matchings in bipartite hypergraphs is, in general, NP-hard. However, when the edges of a hypergraph satisfy certain expansion conditions, it becomes possible to study the problem algorithmically. I’m interested in studying these sufficient conditions, specifically as they relate to allocation problems.
Personal, but work related
I run a lot. I really like to run. Often it’s with Race Condition Running, which is open to anyone who’d like to join us!
