Jordan Ellenberg - Wisconsin

I will talk, pretty casually, about random walks, which I first learned about as part of my Harvard undergrad thesis in finite group theory, and which turn out to be at the heart of the mathematical analysis of gerrymandering; along the way I will talk about the project of doing mathematics in a way that engages with the world outside the math department walls.
