Meet a Mathematician: Lillian Pierce
Hosted by Ingrid Daubechies
Monday, November 27 at 6:30 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 Ingrid Daubechies, MoMath’s 2023–2024 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, as she welcomes Lillian Pierce to the MoMath stage to share her experiences, her story, and her love of mathematics.
Lillian is a math professor at Duke University whose math research connects number theory with harmonic analysis. After interning at the National Security Agency and majoring in math for her bachelor’s degree at Princeton University, Lillian became a Rhodes Scholar and earned her master’s at Oxford University, followed by a PhD at Princeton.
