"When 7,000 Mathematicians Come to Boston" essay about my impressions as a first-time Joint Mathematics Meetings attendee has been published in the January 2013 Notices of the AMS. Alexi Hoeft is a mathematics student who will be entering the Rutgers math PhD program in 2014. Alexi has a Mathematics B.A. and an Engineering B.S. from the University of Virginia and an M.S. in Mathematics from Virginia Commonwealth University. Contact: ahh6e at virginia dot edu Brief Personal Statement:I prefer fields of math which cater to abstract or concrete geometric intuition, and my research interests include fluid mechanics and partial differential equations.To use Freeman Dyson's labels, I am a "bird" and usually build the big picture before filling in the technical details. I enjoy spreading the joy of our subject to mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike and I seek out opportunities both to attend relevant conferences and to give talks. As a way to collect useful math resources, I founded and maintain the website www.MathishToEnglish.com. More information: |
