Recording of Meet a Mathematician with Jordan Ellenberg

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Thursday, May 20, 2021.

Appropriate for all ages.

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 host Alex Kontorovich as we bring diverse and talented guests to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.

Jordan Ellenberg is the John D. MacArthur Professor of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a distinguished researcher, and prolific expositor of mathematics.  He is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and has won a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Simons Fellowship for his research work in number theory, algebraic geometry, topology, and combinatorics.  He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling book How Not To Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking and the forthcoming Shape: The Hidden Geometry of Information, Biology, Strategy, Democracy, and Everything Else, as well as a novel, The Grasshopper King.

Hosted by MoMath’s 2020-2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and Rutgers Math Professor Alex Kontorovich.
