##### Illustrating Mathematics Open House at Waterfire

**September 18, 2019** - ICERM is pleased to be a part of Providence’s "Big Bang Science Fair" Waterfire event on September 28th. All are invited to attend our hands-on open house featuring many of our Illustrating Mathematics program participants. Come engage with these talented artists-in-residence and explore their work. Visualize mathematics through displays of art made using 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC routing, virtual reality, textiles, carving, painting, video, and more! Mingle in ICERM’s beautiful 11th-floor space along the river and enjoy a sweeping view of Waterfire. Tickets are required for entry. Register for your free tickets.

**August 30, 2019** - It's that time of year again when we welcome our new Postdocs!

Welcome, Gregory Darnell Institute Postdoc, 2019-2020

Gregory Darnell completed his Ph.D. in Quantitative and Computational Biology at Princeton University in 2019 under the mentorship of Professor Barbara Engelhardt. His research interests within statistical genetics include creating machine learning algorithms for understanding the genetic basis of disease. He has developed both Bayesian and deep learning-based methods for scaling and adapting traditional genetic association study techniques to high-dimensional traits. Gregory will be at ICERM from September 2019 to May 2020 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
