Matt Evans joins cohort for recent PhDs in mathematics
June 8, 2021
Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics Matt Evans joins other early career mathematicians as a member of the 2021 cohort for Project NExT, a professional development program for new or recent PhDs in the mathematical sciences. Project NExT addresses all aspects of an academic career through workshops held at MathFest 2021 as well as the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2022. Project NExT Fellows explore and discuss issues that are of special relevance to beginning faculty, such as: innovative approaches to a variety of introductory and advanced courses, strategies for engaging students in specific mathematics courses, supporting students from historically underserved groups, involving undergraduates in mathematical research, preparing future K-12 teachers of mathematics, writing grant proposals, and balancing teaching and research.
