Graduate Student Representative
In the 2023-24 school year, I am serving as the Graduate Student Representative for the UW Mathematics Department. The following are my responsibilities:
I am more than happy to help you with any of my responsibilities listed here! Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is something I can do.
General Student Advocacy: Solicit graduate student feedback on numerous topics over the course of the academic year, and convey this to faculty during appropriate conversations or meetings.
Faculty Meetings: Attend faculty meetings and convey student thoughts and concerns to the department.
Graduate Committee Meetings: Attend meetings and convey student thoughts and concerns in meetings which may make decisions about the program (and students within it).
GPC Meetings: Meet regularly with the Graduate Program Chair to convey student thoughts and concerns.
Current Topics/Meet the Department Seminar: Organize and coordinate the Current Topics/Meet the Department seminar, traditionally held 4:30pm-5:30pm on Thursdays in the fall quarter.
Incoming Student Activities: Organize, coordinate, and moderate the Incoming Student Panel in the fall and the Prospective Student Panel in the spring, and attend First-Year Orientation in the fall.
GSR/GSSC Elections: Solicit nominations and run election for the next year's GSR and GSSC.
Current Topics Seminar
In Autumn 2023, the Current Topics Seminar runs on Thursdays 4:30pm - 5:30pm in PDL C-038. The purpose of the seminar is to give early graduate students an opportunity to meet the department, learn about the variety of research directions available, and provide a starting point for finding an advisor. The schedule for Autumn 2023 is:
In the spirit of Max Lieblich's "listening hours" as GPC, I will hold GSR office hours regularly. Feel free to come by and let me know what's on your mind!
In Autumn 2023, office hours are every other Monday afternoon from 4pm to 5pm in my office (PDL C-552), starting October 9th (Oct 9, Oct 23, Nov 6, Nov 20, Dec 4).
Note: On November 6th, office hours have been moved to 5pm to 6pm.
