About Hotel Infinity

Hello!  I'm a mathematician who studies crazy shapes, draws colorful pictures, and makes mathy videos.  Hotel Infinity is a growing collection of my videos, exploring advanced math concepts through story-telling.

I earned my PhD in math from MIT in 2011, and then taught math at UCLA until 2015.  I had the wonderful opportunity to teach and mentor many talented undergraduates during these years.  However, I've always believed that math is for everyone, and that many abstract math concepts can be made accessible to everyone, including children.  

Math is a creative process, about building and exploring imaginary worlds.  When we teach math, it's essential to encourage this creativity, and to teach the intuition behind every concept.  This intuition often varies person to person, and two people may have radically different (but equally effective) ways of thinking about the same idea.  To me, this is a major reason why it's important to welcome many different kinds of minds into the mathematical community, and to make math accessible to all.  

These videos are my small attempt to nudge the world in that direction.  I plan to make a whole lot more of them, on a wide variety of math topics, at varying levels of depth.  If I were able to financially support myself making videos then I could make a new one every week, which would be wonderful.  I'd love to build entire courses -- exploring abstract algebra, analysis, and topology with vivid intuition and careful rigor -- all accessible to anyone who's curious, whether they consider themselves a "math" person or not.
