The seminar has three purposes –
Introduce research areas in mathematics and computer science to students of DKU (Duke Kunshan University) who would like to study in graduate school.
Give student a sense of what is like to purse a PhD degree in a foreign country.
Encourage female students to consider studying math and computer science.
The seminar is designed to be accessible to students with only basic college level mathematics and computer science knowledge.
As for the moment, the seminar will by hold online via zoom.
Speaker – Dr. Yelena Yuditsky (Université libre de Bruxelles)
Time – Fri 10/8/2021 1400 (Chinese Standard Time)

Dr. Yuditsky is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics at Université libre de Bruxelles with Samuel Fiorini and Gwenaël Joret. Before arriving in Brussels, she was a postdoctoral researcher at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and Karlsruhe institute of technology.
Dr. Yuditsky did her PhD at McGill University under the supervision of Bruce Reed and Sergey Norin.
Her research interests are in extremal combinatorics and structural graph theory. She is also interested in discrete geometry.
In this talk, Dr. Yuditsky will present some of her research in graph theory. Graph is an abstract way to describe a network and can be easily found in the real world, for example, social networks, road maps, the internet and much more.
Dr. Yuditsky will also talk about her experiences as a PhD student in Canada. Dr. Yuditsky will try to share as much advice as possible regarding doing a PhD.
