Did you ever wonder what a mathematician does all day? Or what made someone decide to become a mathematician? Or even, what a mathematician does for fun? You may be surprised by some of the answers! Join Steven Strogatz, MoMath's 2021–2022 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, as he brings diverse and talented guests to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.
In June, meet Angela Tabiri. Angela is an AIMS-Google AI Postdoctoral Fellow at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), located in Ghana. She is also a Research Associate and Academic Manager for the Girls in Mathematical Sciences Program at AIMS. Angela's research interests include noncommutative algebra, quantum groups, and quantum homogeneous spaces. She founded Femafricmaths, an NGO that promotes African women in mathematics by interviewing them and sharing their stories on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. The goal is to inspire young women and to show them that studying math opens up diverse career options.
