Welcome to the Math Department

Looking forward to a great year in the Math Dept with the 2014-15 Liaisons!!  The nine students below will be planning the math retreat, T-shirts, and other exciting events; they welcome your input.  They can be contacted to liaise with Math faculty if you have any questions or concerns about academic issues.  Also, check out their Facebook page for announcements of events.

2015-2016 Liaisons

Hannah Li ‘16

Hannah Li

Hi! I'm Hannah Li and I'm a senior math major at Pomona. I've lived all over (China, Kentucky, New York, California) but for now I'm enjoying my time in Sunny, Sunny SoCal, where I drink Motley cappuccinos, doodle and draw, and, of course, do math. I've taken some courses in Real Analysis, Abstract Algebra, and Topology, as well as more applied courses in Differential Equations, Probability, and Operations research, and many many courses in Combinatorics/Graph Theory. I studied abroad at Budapest Semesters in Math and I've also had summer research experience at a math finance REU and a pure math REU, so feel free to ask me about those at well! 

Hong Suh ‘16

Hong Suh

My name is Hong and I'm a senior math major. My friend keeps telling me to come to computer science but I will never sell out because my heart is too strong and I don't know any computer science. I'm on the pure math track and I've done math research at Central Michigan University and Williams College over the past two summers. Feel free to ask me about math classes or REUs or anything. I also work at the Asian American Resource Center (AARC).

Ziv Epstein ’17 (Spring)

Ziv Epstein

Hello!  I'm a junior from Boulder, Colorado involved in PPXC/PPTF, KSPC, and machine learning research in psychology. You can snag my contact info and more of my interests at www.zepstein.com. Classwise, I've taken Calc III, Linear Algebra, Probability, Combinatorics, Time Series and Linear Models. I also do the computers. Super stoked to get mathematical with y’all! 

Ruby Kim ’17

Ruby Kim

Hi there! My name is Ruby and I'm a third-year applied math major also involved in biomedical research. I've taken Differential Equations, Probability, Vector Calc, Combinatorics, Intro Analysis, and Clinical Trials, and I'm currently taking Real Analysis and Math Modeling. I love playing basketball and feeling confused (by puzzles). You might see me longboarding around campus and/or sporting one of my various Dodgers caps --stop me and say hi!

Beauttie Kuture ’17

Beauttie Kuture

Welcome to the Math Department! My name is Beauttie Kuture, and I was born and raised in Reno, NV.  I'm an avid fan of hip-hop, and I love playing the piano, attending poetry slams, and dancing in my free time. As a junior, I've taken a good amount of both pure and applied math courses. I also did research over this past summer at UC Berkeley. Feel free to send me an e-mail or find me in Millikan to ask me about anything! 

Yenny Zhang ’17 (Fall)

Yenny Zhang

Hi I'm Yenny, a third year on the Statistics track, and I love math!! My favorite math classes have been Operations Research and Statistical Theory. This past summer I did computational statistics research on random forests and the "Bag of Little Bootstraps" with Professor Jo Hardin. I've been an AAMP mentor and OA leader, and work at the AARC and the Career Development Office. I love talking with and meeting new people, so please feel free to contact me with any questions about the math department or anything at Pomona!!

Amy Oden ’18

Amy Oden

Hello y’all! I’m Amy and I am a sophomore from Houston, Texas. I’ve taken Calc II and Linear Algebra and am currently enrolled in Vector Calc and Combinatorics(!!). You can catch me dancing with Moments in Movement as well as dancing everywhere else. This past summer I was an intern at the American Dance Festival and it was quite a blast. I look forward to talking about math and my dog with all of you!

Adam Starr ’18

Adam Starr

Howdy! I am Adam Starr, a sophomore, pure-math major. (So, if you think my jokes are sophomoric you'd be right!) At Pomona, I have taken Linear Algebra, Vector Calculus, Statistical Methods for Clinical Trial Data, Discrete Dynamical Systems and Chaos, and I am currently in Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis. When not working on math problems, I like to solve puzzles, travel and explore all things culinary. 

Janie Neal ’19

Janie Neal

Hello. I'm Janie. I hail from the south suburbs of Chicago, but I'm acclimating to SoCal weather quickly. As I am just a first year, I'm not sure what my major will be but math is a strong candidate. Over the summer during Pomona's HAP program, I did statistics research with Prof. Hardin using the program "R". Now, this semester I'm taking both Calculus 2 Honors and Linear Algebra. I can be found napping in the new math lounge if anyone would like to talk to me.
