### AWM Special Lecture "Complex dynamics and stochastic transitions," presented by Rachel Kuske

The Brown Chapter of the Association of Women in Mathematics will be holding a special lecture presented by Rachel Kuske, Professor of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia. Her talk will provide an overview of stochastic modeling approaches that are used to study dynamical transitions and bifurcations in a variety of application areas. The goal will be to discuss how the mathematical ideas and approaches are adapted for tipping points and transitions in seemingly unrelated applications, such as neural dynamics, mechanics, and climate dynamics. She will also discuss how exploring new areas of applications has been important throughout her career.

The mission of the AWM is to encourage woman to develop their mathematical talent, and to attain their potential in academic and intellectual pursuits in the mathematical sciences.
