Outreach


angela.gibney@gmail.com

I like to be involved with outreach activities,  and below are descriptions of some of the things I am doing, and have  recently been involved with.


The Early Career Section of The Notices:

I am an associate editor in charge of the new Early Career Section of the AMS Notices, which will appear for the first time in January 2019.  Our goal is to cover aspects of the profession having to do with professional development. The idea is to give people the advice they might not get if they aren’t at a place where people are paying attention to them.


MATHCAMP Happened!

(check out the link for more details)

With Danny Krashen, I have helped to run MathCamp, a program at UGA for high school aged kids.

Here is a description of this year’s activities.

 

Here is a YouTube video we made after last year’s activities:


Resources for early career math people:

I was a Co-PI on the UGA AGANT RTG grant, and before that a Co-PI on the UGA VIGRE grant, and mainly in that capacity have given a number of professional development talks for postdocs and graduate students.  For example, here are slides or notes, presented to the students:

Women in Math:

Are you a female grad student or postdoc?  Do you have a female grad student or postdoc?

  • Apply for an AWM travel grant.  Tell your students and postdocs to try to get this funding.

  • Go to conferences and summer schools to learn more math and meet other people (contacts really help).  Tell your students and postdocs to do this.

Here are some links to find out what is happening:

Ravi Vakil’s Algebraic Geometry Conference List

Kirin Kedlaya’s Arithmetic Geometry Conference List

Past women in math events:

 

 

 

  • During Rutgers Day this year, the Rutgers AWM group sponsored a Woman in Math booth, which together with the other math department activities, and Corrine Yap’s one woman show “Uniform Convergence” drew a large audience.  Here’s a link to some photos of the day.

 

 


Back in the day….

In graduate school I was a co-organizer at UTAustin of Saturday Morning Math Group (our website back then)
