The debut of my column in Quanta Magazine was recently featured by the American Mathematical Society’s *Math in the Media*!

In addition to a nice review of my first *Quantized Academy* column, “Symmetry, Algebra, and the Monster“, I was also interviewed by *Math in the Media’s *Rachel Crowell. Here’s an excerpt:

AMS: What excites you most about Quanta’s addition of the Quantized Academy series?

PH: Quanta does a wonderful job showing how mathematics and science are vibrant, active endeavors. The writers bring math and science alive, telling exciting stories of mathematicians, scientists and their work. Quantized Academy can help connect students, teachers, and other lifelong learners to those stories and the math behind them.
