Mathematics graduate student Nancy Scherich's modern dance video, "Math Dance 2," won first place in this year's Art of Science competition. Art of Science encourages members of the UCSB community to show the artistic side of their field of study, as a way of engaging the public in what can otherwise be esoteric topics. Scherich's video illustrates three different but interrelated Mathematics disciplines -- algebra, geometry, and topology. You can see the winning video, and learn about the runners-up, in The Current.

Xin Zhou, an assistant professor in the UCSB Mathematics department, has received a fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This fellowship is awarded annually to researchers nominated by their peers for promising early-career achievements.

Zhou, whose research interests include differential geometry and general relativity, investigates the geometric properties of surfaces. His current research focuses on mathematical models for soap bubbles, which involve interesting differential geometry that also applies to the boundaries of black holes.
