How to understand mathematics: what makes mathematical facts different from others. I am interested in the methods of understanding mathematical facts.


I am a British Korean, currently studying in the US. As a first generation university student, woman of colour with learning disabilities, my experience of the world has been unique. I enjoy meeting people and learning more about what their experience is like. In my spare time, I am an amateur guitarist and singer. Recently I have become a board game enthusiast, especially looking for games with Korean mythology themes!

Why is science communication important to you personally?

I want to show the world the mystery of mathematics! What we learn in school may seem boring: but we depend on mathematics so much. Nevertheless, many people do not understand what it is, really. Looking at the history and philosophy of mathematics and sciences, I want to share my questions about the world.
