Assistant Professor Elizabeth Gross has been awarded a CAREER grant from NSF in the amount of $464,828. Some more details can be found here: Identifiability and Inference for Phylogenetic Networks using Applied Algebraic Geometry.
She previously studied Computational algebraic geometry and combinatorial algorithms for neuroscience and biological networks under another NSF award.
Many of us remember Tina Wang who completed her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from our department in 2014.
Since then she has opened many restaurants across the state and country, under the business name Tanaka Ramen
Pictured we see a 3-D rendering of one of her new restaurants to open soon, in Ala Moana shopping center / Pearlridge mall.
A new website, MathSeminars.org
has been created by mathematicians at MIT as a place to collect online math seminars happening around the world. It already has a lot on it: 39 talks in the next week alone.
Included is a UH-based topological groups seminar organized by Wayne Lewis (and begun in a joint effort with Adolf Mader).
It runs Tuesdays 6-8 AM via Zoom (the link is accessible there).
Last Tuesday we had attendees from Switzerland, South Africa, Italy, and the U.S.
