Georgia Tech REU 2021

In the summer of 2021, I mentored an REU project at GA Tech.

Dan Margalit directed a group of the three projects about Curves in Surfaces, each project mentored by a postdoc. The mentors were Yvon Verberne, Wade Bloomquist and myself. All together, we had 8 undergraduate students in our 8 week program. We hosted weekly colloquia, professional development seminars, and daily group lunches.

My project: Curves in non-orientable surfaces.

My group consisted of two talented students, Sarah Ruth Nichols and Julia Shneidman.

Sarah Ruth and Julia presented a posted at the GA Tech REU poster session, and a PDF of their poster can be found here.

We wrote a paper, Large 1-systems of Curves in Non-Orientable Surfaces

Sarah Ruth and Julia gave a talk at the 2021 MAA Mathfest Student Paper Session and won the 2021 MAA Outstanding Paper Session Presentation Award.
