In The Crimson and Le Monde

September 23, 2015

Do you guys remember the event I went to last week? It was the kick-off event for a new group at Harvard called Gender Inclusivity in Mathematics (GIIS), and it went well. It was written up in The Crimson, together with an action shot of me and Moon giving out tough love advice:

GIIS

This took place in the same room in which I wrote my quals, which might explain why I’m looking confused and horrified.

One of the organizers, Cherie Hu, wrote a blog yesterday inspired by last week’s event which ponders identity and mathematics.

Also! I was please to be featured in a story that ran in Le Monde last week¬†with my friend and mathematical colleague Leila Schneps, who recently wrote a book with her daughter about bad math in courts systems. It’s in French, obviously, but if I remember my schooling correctly I am quoted in the article talking about destructive algorithms like the Value-Added Model for teachers and even political micro-targeting. No picture there though.
