Diversity: Interested in the representation of women and minorities within the mathematical community? I have launched the Diversity Nominating Collective (DiNC).
Awards: Andy Bernoff and I have won the 2013 Outstanding Paper Prize from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for some of our joint work. Our same paper also won a SIAM/SIGEST award. See this press release, and also this SIAM News story featuring a photo of our moment of glory.
NSF Grant: I am supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Research at Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program, “Pattern-forming dynamical systems in theory and experiment,” DMS-1009633. This three-year, $250k award will support at least twelve undergraduate researchers, many of whom will work at the interface of theoretical applied mathematics and experiment.
