Join the Asian Network at Yale (ANY) and Working Women’s Network (WWN) for the next women’s leadership event series with Asha Rangappa, Senior Lecturer at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, and former Associate Dean at Yale Law School. Lunch will be provided.
The focus of the Women’s Leadership Series is to bring together a diverse mix of Yale’s own successful women leaders who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues, will inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to advance in their careers and lives. The format for the Leadership Series will consist of a moderated discussion with the speaker that will delve into topics of interest in which the speaker will share her personal and professional perspectives on questions. The themes of the series are Leadership, Identity, Career, Well-being, and Service.

More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By the year 2030, this will have increased to two-thirds. Urban living is an ubiquitous exposure for health. The day will bring together scholars from around the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with creating health in urban contexts. Presenters will also discuss methods that can advance urban health scholarship and feature case studies from cities that have invested in population health, synthesizing the state of the science of urban health.
Cohosted with Boston University Initiative on Cities and Yale Institute for Global Health.
Graduate students enhanced their research this summer with history-related activities. Students were asked: What history-related activities did you do this summer? Did you discover anything particularly interesting (in the archives or the field), or gain any new insights into your work?
Yale’s Yifeng Liu will be awarded the 2018 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize for his contributions to the field of mathematics.
The annual prize is given to those whose work is influenced by world-renowned mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. Recipients must be 32 years of age or younger to be considered for the prize, a requirement inspired by Ramanujan himself who passed away at only 32.
Liu, an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Yale since 2015, pursued his undergraduate degree at Peking University in 2007 and completed his Ph.D. in 2012 at Columbia University. Prior to working at Yale, Liu was an assistant professor at Northwestern University. His primary areas of interest span algebraic geometry, automorphic representations, and number theory. Liu expanded upon some of the 1980s discoveries made by Gross-Zagier and Kolyvagin, allowing him to make significant contributions to non-Archimedean geometry.
