Banquet and Keynote Speaker <b>Reinventing yourself: the challenges and opportunities of new paradigms in research and education</b>

Monday, March 4, 2013 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Jill Pipher (Brown University)
I will share my perception of some of these challenges and opportunities, illustrate with an extended mathematical example drawn from my own career, and offer some unsolicited advice.

Jill Pipher is Professor of Mathematics at Brown University, and Director of the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM). She received her Ph.D. from UCLA in 1985, spent five years at the University of Chicago as Dickson Instructor and then Assistant Professor, and came to Brown as an Associate Professor .
Her research interests include harmonic analysis, partial differential equations and cryptography. She has published papers in each of these areas of mathematics, coauthored an undergraduate cryptography textbook, and jointly holds four patents for the NTRU encryption and digital signature algorithms. She was a co-founder of Ntru Cryptosystems, Inc, now part of Security Innovation, Inc. Her awards include an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship, NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Fellowship, and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellowship. In February 2011, she became the President of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
