Professor Chad Topaz public lectures

Chad Topaz is Professor of Mathematics at Williams College (USA) and founding director of the Institute for the Quantitative Study of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (QSIDE).

Chad's applied mathematics research focuses on patterns in the natural world, from fluid waves to insect swarms, and engages tools from dynamical systems, computation, and topological data analysis. His work through QSIDE aims to quantify the degree and scope of social injustice, and to provide solutions to remedy it.

Professor Topaz was hosted by the Department of Mathematics with the support of the Faculty of Science Equity Committee and gave two lectures which can be viewed below. 

Inclusive Teaching
