Meet a Mathematician:
John Urschel

Thursday, April 27 at 4:00 pm ET




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 Tim Chartier, MoMath's 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor, as he brings diverse and talented guests to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.

Meet mathematician and former NFL pro football player John Urschel.  John's math research focuses on graph theory, numerical analysis, and machine learning.  After a successful career with the NFL as a pro football player for the Baltimore Ravens, John went on to pursue and obtain a doctorate in mathematics from MIT and is currently a Junior Fellow at Harvard University, but will be joining the MIT faculty as an assistant professor of mathematics this fall.  Join Tim Chartier, MoMath's 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, as he leads a conversation exploring John’s unusual journey through the worlds of mathematics and football.
