MurphyKate Montee, Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor of Mathematics, has been awarded a National Science Foundation Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences grant (#2317001) for her project “Cubulation and Property (T) in Random Groups.” This two-year project, which will involve student researchers, aims to understand mathematical groups by starting with a randomly chosen abstract group and then studying the space(s) whose symmetries it could describe. Prof. Montee’s grant includes support for her ongoing efforts to promote inclusivity and connections for undergraduate women and other under-represented individuals within mathematics through groups such as Gender Minorities in Math/Stats (GeMMs), mentor/mentee programs, book clubs, and other community building activities at Carleton.
