Join the Women in Mathematical Sciences group (WIMS) at UNT on April 21, 2023, 12--1pm in GAB 461 for a panel discussion open to all members of the UNT community on "Crafting a mathematics career and work boundaries".

Wondering if a mathematics career is the right choice for you? How do you craft a career in math when you don't fit the mold? When role models seem few and far between? We talk to 3 women in mathematics about their careers, how and why they started in mathematics, their day to day activities on the job, and navigating and setting work boundaries:

Dr. Catherine Schwartz, Senior Data Scientist at the Johns Hopkins Univ. Applied Physics Laboratory, previously Systems Engineer for Lockheed Martin and Data Scientist for Sphere of Influence, PhD in Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computing from Univ. of Maryland,

Dr. Chuang Shao, Department Chair of Mathematics at Dallas College, previously Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Northeastern State Univ. and also Professor and Coordinator of Mathematics at Rose State College, PhD in Mathematics from UNT,

Dr. Yanyan He, Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science Engineering at UNT, previously Assistant Professor of Mathematics at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and postdoctoral fellow at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the Univ. of Utah, PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Florida State Univ.
