Did you ever wonder what a mathematician does all day?  Or what made someone decide to become a mathematician?  Or even, what a mathematician does for fun?  You may be surprised by some of the answers!  Hosted by Professor Alex Kontorovich, MoMath's 2020-2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and Rutgers. 

Through MoMath (the National Museum of Mathematics) meet Lillian Pierce, the Nicholas J. and Theresa M. Leonardy Professor of Mathematics at Duke.  Her research interests are at the intersection of number theory and harmonic analysis.  She will share her experiences, her stories, and her love of mathematics.
