AMS Math in the Media — Interview
I was recently interviewed for the American Mathematical Society’s Math in the Media column, in which I answer some questions my Quanta Magazine column and about writing about math for the public. I was asked specifically about my column on the universal covering problem.
Why did you recently choose to write about the universal covering problem?
It’s such a fun mathematical story to tell, with meaningful connections to high school geometry. And there’s something uniquely mathematical about studying a shape for a hundred years and still not knowing exactly what it looks like. I enjoy bringing those experiences to others.
