Tanya Khovanova, MIT and math blogger

Tanya Khovanova is a mathematician associated with MIT, but is probably most well-known for her fun and popular math blog. She writes about a large variety of accessible topics, including "Math as an Aphrodisiac," "Polite Gender Bias," "Why are We Losing Female Mathematicians," statistics, math education, and math humor. Following her talk on convex geometry, she will be discussing gender imbalance in math.

The event is free and open to the public.
