"Converging Spaces" is part of the Eminent Women in Science Seminar Series.
Christina Sormani's research concerns the shapes of geometric spaces called Riemannian manifolds and has applications in the field of General Relativity. As a member of the Association of Women in Mathematics she has organized panels addressing diverse topics such as Developing a Successful Career through Collaboration, the Personal Lives of Mathematicians and Increasing the Numbers of Tenured Women in Mathematics.
Dr. Sormani is a professor of mathematics at the CUNY Graduate Center and Lehman College specializing in Geometric Analysis. She earned her doctorate at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University and conducted postdoctoral work at Harvard and Johns Hopkins Universities. She is currently supported by the National Science Foundation for her research on the Convergence of Manifolds.
Lunch Reception to follow.
