2019 Festival: Dr. Holly Krieger (University of Cambridge)

Dr. Holly Krieger (University of Cambridge)

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute welcomes Dr. Holly Krieger to the 2019 National Math Festival!

Dr. Holly Krieger is the Corfield Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and Director of Studies and Fellow in Maths at Murray Edwards College, one of the few women-only Cambridge colleges. She is well-known as a guest on the YouTube channel Numberphile, where her videos on the fascinating arithmetic and dynamical features of the Mandelbrot set have drawn millions of views. In her research she studies the interactions between families of complex dynamical systems and number theory, and in her free time she reads, travels, cooks, and subjects unsuspecting strangers to photos of her border collie mix Konrad.


At the 2019 Festival

You’ve seen her on the YouTube channel Numberphile. Now join Dr. Holly Krieger as she explores the beautifully weird and weirdly beautiful world of pure mathematics — a world of chaotic attractors, narcissistic numbers, and more!
