2018 AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow

University of Illinois at Chicago, Math 
Fellowship Sponsor: American Mathematical Society
Fellowship Site: Raleigh News & Observer

I finished my PhD in mathematics from University of Illinois at Chicago in the summer of 2017. My research was in the field of geometric group theory, where I applied new techniques of cubulation to random groups, a field from the 1980s. While in graduate school, I founded a few regional conferences for women in mathematics, mentored undergraduates in mathematics, and started my blog, Baking and Math. I blog about current research in mathematics, baking, Vietnamese food, social issues, and whatever else I'm thinking about that week. I expend most of my energy keeping two small humans alive- they appeared during graduate school and have stuck around me since then. I believe all news is local news and all politics is local politics, and that's why I'm so excited to become part of the Raleigh News & Observer this summer as an AAAS Mass Media Fellow.
