About Me
My name is Shahrzad Jamshidi, but most people call me Sara. I am a doctoral student studying mathematics at Penn State University working with Dr. Jason Morton. My interests are broad, but I am currently working on creating an automatable model of the representativeness heuristic based largely on the work of Louis Narens. I also have a forthcoming paper on defining the invariants of tree tensor networks.
I love math. More importantly, I see the development and accessibility of the subject to be crucial to the future of humanity. Every major problem we face has a significant mathematical component. Whether you are talking about the degradation of the environment, infectious disease, limited energy, overpopulation, or global poverty, math literacy is needed to understand the problem and mathematics will be an essential tool in finding a solution.
