Po-Shen Loh End-of-the-semester colloquium for all BMC-Upper groups

 

Title: How Math Invented a New Way to Fight Infectious Disease

Speaker: Po-Shen Loh

Speaker Bio: Po-Shen Loh is a math professor at Carnegie Mellon University, and the national coach of the MAA's USA International Mathematical Olympiad team. He also dabbles in social entrepreneurship, founding the free math and science education platform expii.com which sees 500,000 visitors each month, supported by his online math courses that reinvent the middle school math curriculum with a focus on creative thinking (daily.poshenloh.com). He has featured in or co-created videos totaling over 10 million YouTube views, and runs a free weekly YouTube Live stream for students to ask him math questions on the spot. Upon the outbreak of COVID, he turned his mathematical attention to create NOVID, the first app to introduce the fundamentally different "network radar" paradigm for pandemic control.

Schedule of events: 

  • Time: 1-2:30pm
  • Location: in-person (Valley Life Sciences Building, Room 2050)
    • Friends and family of BMC-Upper students are welcome to attend the colloquium!
    • Because the event is being held indoors, all attendees will be required to wear masks.
  • (Held online if conditions change)
