For Nonspecialists

A favorite local nonspecialist

The following resources are aimed at nonspecialists.

- Improv-ing a Mathematician's Professional Skills. An article I wrote for the Dec 2016/Jan 2017 issue of MAA FOCUS, the Mathematical Association of America's newsmagazine, about the impact of improv training on my professional development.

- Talking number theory with high school students in September 2019.

- Moving Ahead in Your Research. An article I wrote for the Early Career section of the February 2019 Notices of the American Mathematical Society ("the world's most widely read magazine aimed at professional mathematicians") about the process of doing research in mathematics.

- About some excellent collaborative research workshops in which I have participated:
- An article by Amy Feaver about the WIN3 workshop, where I led a number theory research project in 2014 (leading to two of the papers on my Papers page.)
- A blogpost I wrote for SAMSI describing the the first NSF/NIH "Innovation Lab" where I met a group of my collaborators (who became my co-PIs on an NSF grant on my Funding page) in 2015.
- An article by Crystal Stewart about the second NSF/NIH "Innovation Lab," in which I collaborated in 2016 on the mentioned proposal concerning social-emotional agnosia.

- Two blogposts on the American Mathematica Society's blog, written by Adriana Salerno:
*For the WIN*, about a panel (about research collaboration conferences) on I which I served at the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings- Some Math Humor/Quotes, including humorous quotes from the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings
