Geometry, dynamical systems, marked length spectrum rigidity, and a hint of thermodynamic formalism.

Noelle Sawyer is a Bahamian mathematician. She earned her PhD in Math from Wesleyan University and her BA in Math and History from Vassar College. When she’s not working on math, she’s probably baking, drinking tea, working on an embroidery project or doing crossword puzzles.

She is also strongly invested in spaces that are anti-racist, safe and equitable, especially for mathematicians. She is the cofounder of Black in Math Week and hopes to continue finding community and making connections.
