On April 17 and 18, students, faculty, and members of the community gathered to take part in the inaugural Research Discovery Days, a research showcase and networking event hosted by the Math Innovation Office. The event, which featured both faculty and graduate student research presentations as well as discussions about entrepreneurship, aimed to connect industry partners with researchers doing exciting work in the Faculty of Mathematics.

Mackenzie Cameron and Sierra Legare have been named this year’s winners of the Mehta-Jenner Climate Mitigation Graduate Scholarship.

The Mehta-Jenner Climate Mitigation Graduate Scholarship recognizes outstanding research focused on climate change or climate change mitigation by graduate students in the Faculty of Mathematics.

The scholarship was established by Adarsh Mehta (BMath’ 98) and Jeffrey Jenner (BMath’ 84) to support and celebrate graduate students who share their passion for environmental and ecological issues, as they are explored through mathematical fields.

Barji and Gulab

A few years ago, one of Trisha Kothari’s sisters asked their aging grandmother a thought-provoking question: “If you were reborn into our generation, what would you do with your life?”

Their grandmother, Barji, who had grown up in India at a time when women had few rights and even fewer opportunities, wasted no time answering.

“Oh, I’d definitely not get married. I would study and start a business,” she told her.
