UC Davis Speaks at the 2024 JMM in San Francisco
Those of us going to the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM), to be held January 3-6, 2024 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, will need to prepare to encounter representatives of UC Davis everywhere. On Thursday, January 4, 9:45am (Room 207), Anne Schilling will deliver the AWM-AMS Noether Lecture titled "The Ubiquity of Crystal Bases." On Friday, January 5, 11am (Room 207), Mariel Vazquez will be giving the SIAM-AMS invited address titled "Topological Considerations in Genome Biology." Last but not least, on Thursday, January 4, 11am (Room 205), Yvonne Lai, who received her Ph.D. under Misha Kapovich in 2008, will give the MAA Lecture on Teaching and Learning titled "(Why) to Build Bridges in Mathematics Education." Our UC Davis colleagues will be involved in many other activities throughout the JMM, so don't hesitate to drive or carpool over, listen to a lecture or two, participate in one of the fascinating panel discussions, and/or convince future employers to hire you!
