Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

We are the CCNY student chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). We want to help foster a sense of community among math enthusiasts at CCNY. We organize various events including group meetings, invited speakers, and community outreach. Our goal is to have students and faculty interact outside of the classroom and to form a support system for each other.

2019-20 Executive Committee:

  • President: Karoline Dubin

  • Vice-President:

  • Secretary:

  • Treasurer:

  • Faculty Adviser: Zajj Daugherty

How to join:

Join our Google Group to receive emails on future events. Also, please fill out our survey for any suggestions you have for events! All CCNY students are welcome to join. All members receive complimentary membership in the AWM.

You can also join our AWM CCNY group on facebook.

Fall 2019 Events:

  • Tuesday September 17, 12:45 - 1:45 pm, NAC 6/310

    Student Seminar

    Join us to hear students present the research they are doing on campus! The first in our seminar series is by two Rich Summer interns.

    Joe Winter:

    My work focuses on the dynamical system known as the perturbed doubling map, a function on the complex plane that maps a complex number z to z-squared + c, where c is a complex number known as the perturbation constant. My talk will detail computational approaches to estimating and visualizing the Julia set of this map. I will also discuss strategies used to estimate periodic points of the map which are then used to explore the relation between c and the maximization of a particular potential.

    Samuel Young:

    Local Subgroup Structures of Abstract Commensurators The abstract commensurator of a group, Comm(G), generalizes the notion of the automorphism group Aut(G). We study a new variation of Comm(F_2), which embeds in Comm(F_2), which we show is not locally residually finite.

    There will be pizza and refreshments!

  • Thursday September 26, 12:45 - 1:45 pm, NAC 6/310

    Math Club Welcome Back Party

    Join AWM and Math Club to discuss the events we have planned for the year. Come grab some pizza and meet some other math enthusiasts!

    Fall 2019 Announcements:

    • Saturday September 21, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm, CCNY

      Math Alliance Conference

      The NYC Regional Math Alliance is organizing a one-day conference highlighting the research of students being mentored by the NYC Alliance. The conference will feature short contributed talks by undergraduate students, a poster session, two plenary talks and a panel discussion on preparing for graduate school. Parallel sessions for the contributed talks will bring together students and faculty with shared interests in smaller groups. The poster session will offer an opportunity for informal mathematical discussions. For more information see here

      If you would like to join Math Alliance see here or speak with one of the CCNY Math Alliance Mentors.

    • Friday October 4, 10 am - 4 pm, Columbia University Campus

      Columbia Women in Science and Engineering Conference

      The WISE Conference is presented by Columbia University's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. The WISE Conference is designed to educate and inspire women from all backgrounds to prepare for and pursue graduate degrees and careers in the fields of science and engineering. Conference attendees will learn about the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of being a woman engineer or scientist.
