#### Connect with ICERM

**August 20, 2018** - Welcome Daniel Irving Bernstein, Semester Postdoctoral Fellow at ICERM from September 2018 until December 2018.

Dr. Bernstein completed his Ph.D. under the direction of Seth Sullivant at North Carolina State University. He is currently an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow at MIT. His research interests include algebraic statistics, tropical geometry, and discrete geometry.

**August 17, 2018** - Next week: Advances in PDEs: Theory, Computation and Application to CFD

"The aim of this workshop is to review the recent progress in the type of PDEs arising from fluid dynamics and other related physical areas, in terms of their theory, computation, and applications. The invited speakers include PDE analysts, applied and computational mathematicians, and engineers. Many of the invited speakers have made fundamental contributions to the development of PDE numerical methods and mathematical analysis as well as cutting-edge applications. In harmony with ICERM's mission, the most significant aspect of this workshop is cutting-edge computational mathematics, and reinforcing the critical role played by computation in the mathematical and experimental aspects of fluid dynamics."

"A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a bill Thursday that would award a Congressional Gold Medal to a trailblazing group of African-American women at NASA, whose largely undocumented contributions to the U.S. space program gained a wider awareness through the book and movie 'Hidden Figures'."
