This is me, in front of a math-bug— but it is not my math-bug! If it is yours, I would love to hear from you.
About me: I am a second year graduate student at the University of Minnesota. My advisor is Vic Reiner. I did my undergrad at Reed College. After that, I spent a year at Smith College's Post-Baccalaureate Program for women in mathematics.
Contact: Email me at braun622 "at" umn.edu. You can also find me at Vincent Hall, office 556.
This year, I am co-organizing the Student Combinatorics and Algebra Seminar with Esther Banaian. We meet every Thursday at 4:40pm in Vincent 570. Please contact me if you are interested in speaking.
I co-run Math Club with Montie Avery. We are always interested in finding speakers to give talks that are accessible to undergraduates!
I am a founding member of CAUSE (Council for the Advancement of Underrepresented Scietists and Engineers). We host events for underrepresented minority graduate students and post-docs throughout the semester. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for our mailing list!
I am helping to organize this year's Mathematics Project at Minnesota, a four-day workshop in January for UMN undergraduates that come from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics.
In April 2019 I will speak at the AMS Sectional Meeting at University of Connecticut in Hartford, CT at the Special Session on Chip-firing and Divisor Theory.
Also in April 2019, I will speak at the CAGE Seminar in Philadephia, PA.
(And again) in April 2019, I will speak at the Smith College Mathematics Colloqium.
Recent Past Travel:
In October 2018, I spoke at the AMS Sectional Meeting at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI at the Special Session on Combinatorics in Algebra and Algebraic Geometry.
In July/August 2018, I taught a course in logical reason through BEAM (Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics) in New York City.
In June/July 2018, I attended FPSAC at Dartmouth and a Summer School on Lie Theory at UGA in Athens, GA.
In April 2018, I spoke at USTARS (Underrepresented Students in Topoloy and Algebra Research Symposium) at Reed College in Portland, OR.
