Meet a Mathematician

A monthly series hosted by Ingrid Daubechies


Ingrid Daubechies

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 mathematicians to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.

Meet Dr. Angel R. Pineda

6:30 pm to 7:30 pm ET


Angel Pineda

Join MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor Ingrid Daubechies as she welcomes mathematician Dr. Angel R. Pineda to the MoMath stage to share his experiences, his stories, and his love of mathematics.

Dr. Angel R. Pineda is a professor of mathematics at Manhattan College.  He was born in Honduras, where his parents work as medical doctors in a public hospital.  Their work inspired his commitment to service as well as his area of research, which focuses on using MRI reconstructions generated by machine learning to study human performance in detection tasks.  He is a member of “Run For GRAID,” a group of mathematicians who fundraise to support mathematics students in developing countries by running races.


These are online-only events.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at
