I’m traveling to the Joint Math Meetings in New Orleans next month primarily because of the job searches that Claremont McKenna is putting forth. (By the way, for those who are still interested in either the Applied Mathematics or the Statistics positions, please get your application in soon!)
However, I am also glad that two of my students will be there as well. Sarah Schott (my graduate student) will be attending a workshop organized by the AWM through funding from the Graduate Student Probability Conference held at Duke this last May. Jason Xu will be presenting a poster based on the work he did at the Claremont REU under my supervision this summer. Please come and support all the undergraduates: last year I went and was amazed by all the interesting mathematics going on!
