What is outreach?
The purpose of my outreach activities is to share my performance of research-level mathematics with populations who typically wouldn't have access to this experience. My goal is for my community to both develop intution for what a mathematician does and to appreciate the creative side of mathematical discovery.
Outreach plays a much larger role than being informative; it also serves as a recruiting tool. I strive to show underrepresented communities - in central Illinois my focus has been girls and rural kids - that they can pursue a career in mathematics or another science.

In Spring 2018 I am co-organizing a math carnival at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Check back later for more information!
