Keynote Speakers

 

 

Dr. Allison Henrich (henricha@seattleu.edu) is an Associate Professor at Seattle University who has a keen interest in studying knots from a mathematical perspective with collaborators. In fact, her favorite collaborators have been undergraduates, both students at Seattle U and students who come to Seattle during the summer for the Seattle University Mathematics Early Research (SUMmER) REU program that she co-directs. To date, Professor Henrich has collaborated with 28 undergraduate researchers, and she looks forward to working with many more students to push the boundaries of mathematical knowledge even further!

 

 

 

Dr. Emilie Purvine (Emilie.Purvine@pnnl.gov) completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers University, New Jersey, in May of 2011 with a focus on experimental mathematics, graph theory, and combinatorics. After graduate school Emilie joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Research Associate working on semantic knowledge systems and graph theory and became a Research Scientist at PNNL in November of 2012. Her current work focuses on applications of graph theory, discrete mathematics, and topology to cyber security, power grid, and information fusion.
