The Accidental Mathematician

Izabella Laba is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia, where she researches harmonic analysis, geometric measure theory, and additive combinatorics. Thankfully, she also writes an excellent, readable blog, where the rest of us can peruse her thoughts on mathematics, gender, the academy, and whatever else happens to be on her unusually brilliant mind on any given day. Recent posts have taken on the dirty politics inherent to website comments sections, engaged a debate over social science terminology as applied to the examination of gender in the math community, and thought through how the internet and mass communications might impact the field of academic mathematics. While some of these articles concern the complexities of high level math, many of them focus on issues that women in academia face, regardless of their area of specialty. Readers interested in a feminist take on the academy will find much to appreciate on this erudite blog by a well-respected mathematician.
