43rd Annual New York Regional Graduate Mathematics Conference

Date: Saturday March 24, 2018 8:30am

This year's 43rd Annual New York Regional Graduate Mathematics Conference at Syracuse University will be held on Saturday March 24, 2018. Our first confirmed keynote speakers is Dr. Emily Riehl. The Syracuse Graduate Mathematics Conference is run entirely by graduate students and is generously supported by the American Mathematical Society and the National Science Foundation.


Keynote Speakers

Dr. Emily Riehl (Johns Hopkins University)

Dr. Emily Riehl received a Bachelors Degree from Harvard University and a Masters Degree from the University of Cambridge before completing her Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 2011 under Dr. Peter May. She was also a Benjamin Pierce Postdoctoral Fellow and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University before becoming an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Riehl's research centers in a variety of topics in category theory related to homotopy theory and serves on the editorial boards for Cahiers de Topologie et Géométrie Différentielle Catégoriques, Homology, Homotopy, and Applications, and the Journal of Homotopy and Related Structures. She is the author of "Categorical Homotopy Theory" and "Category Theory in Context". Dr. Riehl received a Harvard University Certificate of Teaching Excellence in 2014 and 2015 and was awarded the Joel Dean Award for excellence in teaching in 2017. Dr. Riehl has appeared several times in the media: being interviewed by the AMS and even appearing on Science Friday with Ira Flatow! Sh is also a co-founder for Spectra and will be on the "Out in Mathematics: Professional Issues Facing LGBTQ Mathematicians" panel at the 2018 Joint Meetings in San Diego. In addition to her academic work, Dr. Riehl is also an avid rugby player and plays the viola.

Dr. Andrea Nahmod (University of Massachusetts Amherst)

Dr. Nahmod received a Bachelors Degree from Universidad de Buenos Aires and Masters Degree from Yale University before completing her Ph.D. at Yale University in 1991 under Dr. Ronald Coifman. Dr. Nahmod's research is at the overlap of Nonlinear Fourier Analysis/Harmonic Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations integrating into it tools from geometry, gauge theory and probability. After receiving her doctorate, she went on to work as a research fellow at Macquarie University and had subsequent positions at the Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI), the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, Courant Institute, and was a Sargent-Faull Fellow at Harvard University before becoming a professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2008. Dr. Nahmod has also served as a visiting professor at MIT. She has four past doctoral students, worked with many post-doctoral students, and is currently working with 3 Ph.D. candidates. Dr. Nahmod has received multiple NSF Grants and was a Simons Foundation Fellow 2013-2014. In 2015, she was elected a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
