Lauren Williams gives Math Department a dose of algebraic combinatorics | News & Announcements - Harvard Gazette

Interview was edited for clarity and length. 

When she arrived at Harvard as a member of the Class of 2000, Lauren Williams knew she liked math, but she wasn’t certain about making a career of it, notes Peter Reuell, Harvard Staff Writer.

These days, her mind is made up. Williams, who grew up in Los Angeles, is the second woman to be tenured in Harvard’s Math Department and the Seaver Professor at the Radcliffe Institute. She comes to campus from the University of California, Berkeley.

Williams focuses on algebraic combinatorics. She will teach one course this semester, a first-year seminar titled “The Story of the Alternating Sign Matrix Conjecture.”
