Math Department hosts Mid-Atlantic Analysis Meeting
October 22, 2020
On October 16th-18th, the second Mid-Atlantic Analysis Meeting (MAAM) took place over Zoom bringing together participants in diverse subfields of analysis. Hosted jointly by Eyvindur Ari Palsson (Virginia Tech), Mahya Ghandehari (University of Delaware), Philip Gressman (University of Pennsylvania), Benjamin Jaye (Georgia Institute of Technology), Yumeng Ou (University of Pennsylvania), and Krystal Taylor (Ohio State University) the conference aimed to provide a venue for early career analysts, primarily from mid-sized US Ph.D. granting institutions within the Mid-Atlantic region broadly construed, to interact.
The conference featured six plenary talks by prominent mathematicians: Andrea Nahmod (University of Massachusetts-Amherst), Betsy Stovall (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Kasso Okoudjou (Tufts University), Tatiana Toro (University of Washington), Shahaf Nitzan (Georgia Institute of Technology), and Michael Brannan (Texas A&M University). Abstracts of these talks can be found on the MAAM 2020 Website.
In addition to the plenary talks there were parallel sessions featuring twenty invited talks, including our own Ph.D. student Sean Sovine. The conference was rounded out by a career panel where participants had the opportunity to ask the plenary speakers for career advice.
The MAAM Conference was only one part of the ongoing MAAM Series featuring weekly Colloquium style talks Fridays at 3 pm. To find out more information about MAAM and upcoming talks visit MAAM 2020.
