|Mathematics Graduate Students Features on Lathisms
|Published Date: 2023-09-29
Mathematics graduate students, Santiago Arango (left) and Jasmine Camero (right), have recently been featured as the Daily Mathematicians on Lathisms, an organization founded in 2016 in order to showcase the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Santiago Arango-Piñeros is a Colombian Ph.D. candidate in Arithmetic Geometry at Emory University, where he is advised by David Zureick-Brown. Raised in Bogotá, Colombia, he fulfilled the compulsory military service before receiving his BS in Mathematics and a second BS in Environmental Engineering from Los Andes University in 2016. After becoming obsessed with moduli spaces of elliptic curves, the topic of his undergraduate dissertation, Santiago decided to abandon engineering to continue his education in Mathematics. Before the start of his PhD program, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, where he obtained an MSC in Mathematics at Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada (IMPA). To read more about Santiago please visit his feature page on the Lathisms website.
Jasmine Camero is a Mexican-American first-generation Ph.D. student from Santa Ana, California. She is currently a student in the Emory University Department of Mathematics studying classical algebraic geometry, advised by Brooke Ullery. Before pursuing a Ph.D., she attended California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), where she received her B.A. in Mathematics in 2020. To read more about Jasmine please visit her feature page on the Lathisms website.
We're thrilled to see our students celebrated like this. Congratulations Santiago and Jasmine!
|Dr. Raman Parimala Elected to Honorary Membership of the London Mathematical Society

The London Mathematical Society has elected Professor Raman Parimala, the Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at Emory University, to Honorary Membership of the Society. Professor Parimala was born in Tamil Nadu and received her education in India leading up to her Ph.D. at the University of Mumbai in 1976. Her career has been distinguished by a remarkable series of publications that started with the concrete theory of quadratic forms and evolved into sophisticated constructions of arithmetic geometry. In the process, she proved or refuted a number of conjectures whose difficult nature had confounded the leading arithmeticians and algebraists of a previous generation. In particular, her construction of non-trivial locally trivial quadratic spaces produced a surprising counterexample to a quadratic analogue of a conjecture of Serre, while her remarkable work with Fluckiger-Bayer on triviality of principal bundles settled positively a conjecture of Serre in the very important case of classical algebraic groups. These and many other chapters in Professor Parimala's opus are illuminated by the conceptual beauty of her techniques as well as the striking results they yield, in as much as her mathematics synthesises deep ideas of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry into a harmonious and powerful whole. Professor Parimala is a fellow of all three Indian academies of science. She was invited to address the International Congress of Mathematicians in Zürich in 1994 and was a plenary speaker at the 2010 Congress in Hyderabad. Among her many honours are the Bhatnagar Prize in 1987 and the Srinivasa Ramanujan Birth Centenary Award in 2003. She has been a member of the mathematical sciences jury for the Infosys Prize from 2019 and on the selection committee for the Abel Prize in 2021-22.

|Dr. Cosmin Pohoata Publishes New Proof that Breaks Decades-Long Drought of Progress
|Published Date: 2023-09-11
Dr. Cosmin Pohoata, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, publishes a new proof that breaks a decades-long drought of progress on the problem of estimating the size of triangles created by cramming points into a square (known as the Heilbronn triangle problem). A summary of the work was recently reported in Quanta Magazine.
|Team BioFuture Wins Goizueta Healthcare Association Healthcare Futuring Competition
|Published Date: 2023-05-08
Emory Math students, Leonardo Molinari and Imran Shah, along with Georgia Tech student, Rene Mata, win Goizueta Healthcare Association Healthcare Futuring Competition! Competing as team "BioFuture," they were tasked to to consider what U.S. healthcare looks like in 2040. Their idea for an integrated computational facility where clinical staff work in conjunction with multidisplinary teams focused on computational modeling work to improve care won them the first place prize. Congrats to team BioFuture! To read more on this accomplishment, please visit this link.
