CCA Fashion Show

My daughter Nina is about to graduate in Fashion Design from the California College of the Arts. She and her fellow seniors present their collections in the annual CCA fashion show on Friday, May 15. This very cool SF event, with professional runway and all, is public.

Students Going Places

Good news from the 2015 job market! Five former PhD students accepted tenure-track positions: Melody Chan joins Brown U, Angelica Cueto joins Ohio State, Ralph Morrison joins Williams College (after a year in Stockholm), Ngoc Tran joins UT Austin (after a year in Bonn), and Caroline Uhler joins MIT (in January 2016). Three others accepted postdoctoral positions: Felipe Rincon joins U of Oslo, Jose Rodriguez joins U Chicago, and Zvi Rosen joins U Penn (after a semester at Penn State).

Einstein Fellow at TU Berlin

I was awarded an Einstein Visiting Fellowship, to build up a research group at TU Berlin. We start in May 2015 with a kickoff workshop.

Introduction to Tropical Geometry

Diane Maclagan and I wrote a textbook on tropical geometry, to be published in May 2015 by the American Mathematical Society.

Waxing Moon

My wife Hyungsook Kim published this excellent historic novel, set in 19th century Korea.

Seminars at Berkeley

There are many wonderful seminars in the Berkeley Mathematics Department. In the Spring of 2015, we ran a Computational Algebraic Geometry Seminar every Monday at 10am.

Applied Algebraic Geometry

I helped to start the SIAM Activity Group on Algebraic Geometry. Please join us. The next conference of this group will take place in August 2015 at Deajeon, Korea.
