I am also looking to improve my presentation skills when it comes to academic talks. I will be on the job marking this coming academic year, and want to make a good impression during the job/research talks I will most likely need to give. Lastly, I wish to grow my network with other women or female identifying individuals in STEM.

Hispanic or LatinoPhD: University of Minnesota Twin Cites, job: The City College of New YorkPhD: Minneapolis MN, job: NY, NYPhD9/4/20179/4/2024I apologize for submitting two applications. Initially, I was on my phone and mistakenly thought I was late for the deadline, which led to my first submission. Upon realizing I had more time, I decided to submit this second application.
I have been actively involved in math outreach since 2016. My experience began with volunteering for BEAM (Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics) in New York City, where I also served as a judge for science events at a high school in the Bronx.
After relocating to Minnesota for my PhD, I continued my outreach efforts at El Colegio, a community-based organization. There, I participated in various activities, including science fairs, university application panels, and mentorship programs for high school students. Tamara Ramirez at El Colegio can provide a reference for my involvement if needed.
My most extensive outreach and mentorship experience was with the EDGE 2021 program, where I spent the summer mentoring female students preparing to enter graduate school. More information about this program can be found at https://www.edgeforwomen.org/edge-2021-participants/.
I am eager to participate in the Mathematics Outreach Seminar and Training (MOST) to enhance my ability to share my knowledge and research with the general public in an engaging and accessible manner. I recently began a lecturer position at the City College of New York (CCNY), where my research focuses on Mathematics and Climate. You can find more about my work here and here.
I am particularly inspired by the Harlem 2032 initiative, a decade-long project where local community leaders and CCNY faculty collaborate to address the intertwined environmental and social justice issues the Harlem community faces. This initiative seeks to affirm the neighborhood's rich cultural heritage while addressing several issues, including the impacts of climate change. I aim to develop a module highlighting the mathematics of climate change, making this complex topic accessible and engaging for the community. I think MOST will be crucial in helping me excel.
Participating in MOST would provide me with the training and skills necessary to improve my public speaking and effectively communicate my research. As a native Spanish speaker, I sometimes feel intimidated speaking in public. I am eager to learn how to overcome this challenge while staying authentic to my voice and passion for mathematics. MOST offers a unique opportunity to join a cohort of female mathematicians, and I am excited about the prospect of developing my abilities alongside such a fantastic group.

YesFractal tilings via dynamical methodsWhite or CaucasianBoston CollegeChestnut Hill, MA, USAPhD8/25/20205/15/2025I have been a graduate student participant in the NSF grant project: Developing Exemplary Math Teacher Leaders, which connects high school teachers in under-resourced Boston public schools with each other and with university-level mathematicians to share content and pedagogy knowledge and to develop leadership projects. I do not have recent experience with outreach to young people, but would be thrilled to gain some!As I craft my last year of graduate school, I am seeking opportunities to build community amongst mathematicians who value communication and uplifting each other's excellence. The MOST program allows me to do this via a particular resonance with my experiences--before I committed to research mathematics as an undergraduate, my high school was a pre-professional acting training program. While theater and math have both occupied central places in my life, I have never intentionally brought them together and would relish the chance to do so. I intend to enter a career as a math educator and educational developer at a university, but I am learning more every day about the interconnectedness of education at all levels and am committed to making an impact wherever I can.

I also believe my field is particularly well-suited to outreach. My research in fractal tilings is (in my biased opinion) both visually appealing and mathematically rich, which were the characteristics of mathematics that appealed to me in the first place. I am energized by imagining the same shapes that inspire me capturing the imagination of young people. That said, I also believe that any mathematical field is a valuable goldmine for outreach. The more different ways that young people can imagine their future, the more they can mold it in a way that they like--and I am ready to show up as one of many enthusiastic, encouraging role models.

NoFormalizing braids and knots in Lean; defining novel structures to formally verify aspects of knittingWhite or CaucasianCarnegie Mellon UniversityPittsburgh, PA, USAPhD8/20/20215/1/2026Very little, formally. But I spend quite a lot of time with children — long-term substitute teaching is 1st and 3rd grade, as well as high school seniors, and a variety of shorter classes, as well as camp and coaching and that sort of thing. I always try to bring in a new aspect of math to them — mobius strips with the little ones, knot colorings with my high schoolers. I have work that I want to share with people - friends, family, students, children, you name it! But I don’t know where to begin. The formal aspect, with Lean and computer assisted theorem proving? The braids part, because it’s so cool that it has an *algebraic* presentation? The idea of a word problem / isomorphism?

I want to learn how to pitch the math. To make it understandable, but not condescending. While somehow highlighting the important bits of it. Like, how do you emphasize how cool an algebraic presentation of braids is (compared to, say, topological), when most of your audience thinks of the y=3x+2 kind of algebra?

Certainly, I’ve been practicing by trial and error. As a former schoolteacher, I have plenty of experience speaking in front of an audience (and moreover, keeping their attention!). But I’ve never received any kind of formal instruction in this. My sink-or-swim experience has led to a dog paddle at best.

And this is something I really want to impart to others. It’s a different view of math, outside the march to calculus. It somehow ties together highly theoretical ideas (i.e. proof assistants / logic), and real-world applications (I’m working with the textiles lab to formalize aspects of knitting / knitting machines, including a novel structure, that of “fused braids”). I’m working on a widget to view a braid transform as I go through a proof, and I have vague ideas for a hands-on manipulative for people to try to solve a simple braid word problem. (yes, I’m totally going to try to pitch that to you all for the museum!)

To me, the math behind braids and knots is mathematics at its best: taking a highly complex real-world object, describing it with mathematical tools, and coming up with an elegant, simple presentation. The algebra gives us insights that fussing about with string can never provide.

There’s perhaps an idea that to be a mathematician, you have to look like a mathematician, and prove yourself by doing the things that the men are doing. I don’t like that. I know knitting and sewing and textiles are traditionally-feminine domains. But I find a sort of power in /choosing/ this. I want to share that you can be yourself, do what you love, and be taken seriously as a mathematician nonetheless. (à la Kelly Girardi)

And the last, but perhaps most meaningful part to me: I’m pretty much always the only woman in any room I’m in (I helped some first-year women get into our program, and I’m thrilled! But years 2-6 … just me). Especially since I’d be one of the “younger” women in this program, I’d be so grateful to meet other women mathematicians and make connections with them.

PS - I know I come from a weird program. The PhD will be in Logic, technically not math. But most of my peers go on to math jobs; my advisor is half in the math department; I’m taking the graduate courses in the math department. Moreover, what I do all day every day is math, pure and simple! Algebra, category theory, sometimes topology. But I have the added benefit of formalizing it, plus being in a department where writing and the humanities matter. I chose this department because I don’t want to simply be a “math grunt” (lol) - I see a much broader appeal and context to the mathematics we’re doing. And I want to share that with others!

And on a personal note - I'm from Jersey, and I remember going to the Museum as a child, just completely entranced. I want to "pay it forward" and bring some of that experience to children and students in Pittsburgh. I'll be home over the summer, and it would be so nice to hop on NJTransit and dive back into that world :)

As a passionate female mathematician, i am eager to participate in the upcoming seminar. Allow me to share my reasons for wanting to be a part of this enriching experience.
First to bridge the gap, by communicating mathematics to the public. Mathematics is often perceived as an abstract and challenging subject, detached from everyday life. As a female mathematician, i recognize the importance of breaking down these barriers. I want to learn how to communicate complex mathematical concepts in an accessible and relatable manner. By participating in the MOST seminar, i hope to gain the skills necessary to engage with the general public, demystify mathematics, and foster a greater appreciation for its beauty and practical applications the likes of my research area.

Secondly empowering women in STEM. As a woman in the field of mathematics, i understand the unique challenges faced by female students and professionals. The underrepresentation of woman in STEM field persists, and it is crucial to address this disparity. I believe that MOST seminar and training will equip me with the right knowledge, tools, and strategies to inspire other women like myself. By sharing my experiences and learning from fellow participants, i hope to encourage more women to pursue STEM career fearlessly. Together, we can create a supportive and inclusive environment where aspiring mathematicians feels empowered to contribute.

Thank you for considering my application. I am excited about the opportunity to learn, grow and contribute to the advancement of mathematics and women in STEM.

In this symposium, our high school students gave interactive presentations of their summer research projects to summer school students from a local middle school. I believe math is for everyone. Some students get opportunities to expand their math knowledge at an early stage of their academic career, or they are aware that they are interested in mathematics and research on their own using the internet. While this is amazing, neither of these cases applied to me. I became interested in pursuing mathematics after taking several analysis courses with brilliant and confident women professors. I chose my area of interest for my PhD work after attending research talks by senior mathematicians. My graduate career, and even my work trajectory up until this point, has been shaped by how well people have communicated mathematics around me.

Currently, I am at the stage of my graduate school career where I am applying to give contributed talks at conferences. While at conferences, I have found that I study not only the way the more senior mathematicians structure their talks, but also how the senior women mathematicians handle questions and interruptions. I am interested in the MOST program, not only as an opportunity to provide valuable experiences to potential blossoming scientists, but also because I think that I would greatly benefit from developing the tools to address questions confidently, as well as the training I would receive to communicate mathematics more effectively.

(The program will fully cover air or train travel within the continental U.S. (if needed) and hotel expenses.), If selected, I agree to give my outreach talk (which will be developed during the program) at least three times OR reach at least 120 students prior to December 31, 2025. I also agree to participate in one online program and one in-person program hosted by MoMath during that timeframe; I understand that the in-person presentation will be in New York City and that MOST will fully cover air or train travel within the continental U.S. (if needed) and hotel expenses and will also provide a small honorarium for that presentation.

This year I was a mentor in my university's directed reading program, which is aimed at encouraging undergraduates to explore their interest in mathematics. I also gave a lightning talk (a 5 minute talk about my current research) at an event organized by UW's AWM chapter, which was again directed at undergraduates who have an interest in math but are not sure about research.I really enjoy sharing my research with curious undergraduates, and I would really like to be able to engage a broader audience. In general, I want to help people see that math can be approachable and fascinating, even when the area of study may seem unintuitive. Noncommutative algebra especially can seem a bit daunting, but I want to show people how stimulating and puzzle-like these problems can be.
