My name is Sarah Schott and I am in my fourth year of undergraduate studies as a Mathematics major at Louisiana State University. During the summer of 2013, I was chosen as a Noyce Scholar and participated in low-dimensional topology research under Dr. Shea Vela-Vick.
The following summer, I took an opportunity to teach gifted high school students at Georgia Tech about topology and fractals. Both of these experiences solidified my plans of becoming a mathematics teacher after I graduate. Some of my favorite things (besides math) are: reading, writing, corny jokes, and my dogs. Currently, I am working on a number theory research project under Dr. Robert Perlis that involves pairs of conjugate permutations.
