First Friday Lunch with Jamol Pender, PhD Candidate in ORFE

FIRST FRIDAY LUNCH AT THE NASSAU CLUB

On December 7th, 2012, PA3 was pleased to host Jamol Pender, a 5th year graduate student in Operations Research and Financial Engineering within the Engineering School. Jamol is research­ing queue­ing the­ory inspired by prob­lems in com­mu­ni­ca­tions centers. While his thesis focuses on queues, he has interests in applied probability, energy, healthcare, mathematical finance and mathematical biology.  

Jamol told us a bit about his path to Princeton and how he got into Operations Research.  Then he gave the group an overview of his research at Princeton. As usual at PA3's First Friday lunches, a lively discussion followed the formal presentation.

First Friday Lunch with Nadezhda Savova, PhD in Anthropology

Nadezhda told the group about The Bread Houses Network, which she initiated while was conducting her PhD research in the Department of 
Anthropology at Princeton. While studying the social role of community 
cultural centers networks in Brazil, Cuba, and Bulgaria, Nadezhda started to connect these 
networks and help them develop exchanges and projects. In 2008 while working for 
UNESCO’s Culture Sector in Paris she founded the  International Council for Cultural 
Centers (I3C), www.international3c.org, which is a global network of community cultural 
centers, already connecting 56 national networks with thousands of centers, scattered from 
rich urban places to some of the most marginalized neighborhoods of the world, proving that 
art is and should be for everyone.

We look forward to hearing about Nadezhda's continued successes as she further develops the network.
