I’ll be attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in New Orleans next January. It’s going to be a busy time!
Perhaps the most important task I will have relates to the open positions at Claremont McKenna. We have two searches this year, one in applied math and one in statistics. I am on both committees, so will be interviewing as many people as possible.
In addition I am also on a panel: “What I wish I had known before applying for a job.” which is scheduled for 2:45-4:15p.m. on Friday, January 7th, 2011 in Mardi Gras EFGH, 3rd Floor, Marriott.
To help launch the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics, I am coorganizing with Gizem Kaarali and Dagan Karp two sessions at JMM. The first is Saturday January 8, 2011, 1:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m MAA Session on Humanistic Mathematics, I @ Mardi Gras BC, 3rd Floor, Marriott. The second is Sunday January 9, 2011, 1:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., MAA Session on Humanistic Mathematics, II @ Mardi Gras BC, 3rd Floor, Marriott
Finally, I am giving a talk on Sunday January 9, 2011, 10:30 a.m. AMS Session on Probability, I, @ Bayside B, 4th Floor, Sheraton. The talk is Using TPA to count linear extensions. and is based on the summer REU work that I did with Jacqueline Banks, University of California, Riverside, Scott Garrabrant, Pitzer College, and Anne Perizzolo, Columbia University.
Hope to see you there!
