We are excited to announce that the emcee for the 2022 Advantage Testing Foundation/Jane Street Math Prize for Girls is Nitya Mani!
Nitya is a PhD student in MIT’s Department of Mathematics. She completed her undergraduate studies in mathematics and computer science at Stanford University. Her research interests include problems in probabilistic combinatorics, number theory, and convex optimization. Some of her recent publications include “Lower Bounds for Max-Cut in H-Free Graphs via Semidefinite Programming” (2021) and “An Interpretable Approach to Hateful Meme Detection'' (2021). Nitya’s honors include the Goldwater Scholarship, the Karl Menger Award from the American Mathematical Society, an honorable mention for the Alice T. Schafer Mathematics Prize, and a Hertz Fellowship.
Please join us in congratulating Nitya Mani for her new role, which is even more special due to her personal connection to the program. She competed in the Math Prize from 2010 to 2014, finishing in ninth place in the 2014 event.
This year’s program is expected to take place in person on Sunday, October 9, 2022, at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. To learn more about the Math Prize for Girls, visit https://mathprize.atfoundation.org/.
