Math Across Campus

MathAcrossCampus is a quarterly colloquium series at the University of Washington to showcase applications of mathematics, with a special emphasis on the growing role of discrete methods in math applications. The goal of this seminar is to expose theoreticians to applied work, to create a community of mathematicians and users of mathematics at UW, and to serve as a guide to students and researchers looking for projects and jobs in math-related areas by offering exposure to ongoing math applications in the Seattle area.

The MathAcrossCampus colloquium series consists of one main talk per quarter followed by a reception. Talks are open to the public and are intended to be accessible to a wide audience.

Organizers and Contact Information

The organizers of MathAcrossCampus are Rekha Thomas, Ioana Dumitriu, and Christopher Hoffman.

MathAcrossCampus is also made possible by the efforts of UW Mathematics graduate students Clayton Barnes, Gerandy Brito Montes de Oca, Christopher Fowler, Avi Levy, Siddharth Mathur, Andrew Pryhuber, Harishchandra RamadasJacob Richey, Amy Wiebe, and Yizhe Zhu.

Selection of Speakers

Invitees are high level researchers who are also renowned public speakers, selected by the MathAcrossCampus community. Ideally, one of the three annual speakers is chosen from within the Seattle community. The subject areas are kept as diverse as possible, and the main talk is intended to be accessible to a wide audience. Nominations of speakers are open to all; if you would like to nominate a speaker, send email to
