τοῦ γὰρ ἀεὶ ὄντος ἡ γεωμετρικὴ γνῶσίς ἐστιν. (Πολιτεία, 527b)
For geometrical knowing is of what is always. ( Republic, 527b )
I am a senior mathematics major and Greek minor at Bowdoin College. My mathematical interests primarily lie in algebraic geometry, broadly construed. Right now I am interested in the application of modern techniques from both pure and applied mathematics to classical problems. I believe the synthesis of the ancient and modern exemplifies the grandeur of mathematics as a long conversation.1
In a previous life, I worked on problems in computational drug discovery.
