Director for Girls Talk Math

Girls Talk Math is a two-week day camp hosted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The program is available to rising 9th through 12th graders who identify as girls in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina and are interested in math. Campers explore challenging problem sets that go beyond high school math curriculum, learn about the rich history of women in mathematics, and create a blog and podcast series about what they learn. The program is free for all attendees and is funded through the Mathematical Association of America Tensor Women and Mathematics grant.

Committee Member for the Directed Reading Program

Our goal is to reach out to undergraduate students who have an interest in learning higher level mathematics that cannot be found in a classroom. This a valuable experience for undergraduate students who are considering graduate school or undergraduate research. Visit here for more information.

President of Graduate Mathematics Association (GMA)

GMA is a student organization that supports the academic and social needs of the graduate students in the mathematics department. Our objectives are to introduce and integrate mathematics graduate students at UNC into departmental research, to insure the interest and rights of the students are being upheld by departmental policies and policy enforcement procedures, and to create a sense of community among graduate students, faculty, staff, and postdoctoral students in the mathematics department.

President of American Mathematical Society (AMS) - UNC Student Chapter

AMS is a graduate student chapter sponsored by the American Mathematical Society, devoted to the furtherance of interest in mathematical scholarship and research. This includes, but is not limited to,

  • the communication of mathematics graduate student research,

  • helping new mathematics graduate students adjust to graduate life, and

  • assisting and informing UNC math graduate students on the job market.

In this effort, the AMS Student Chapters at UNC, NCSU and Duke created the Triangle Area Graduate Mathematics Conference (TAGMaC) and currently rotate hosting duties on a semesterly basis. As President of AMS Student Chapter at UNC, Chapel Hill, I hosted and organized TAGMaC in November 2019. Visit here for more details.
