I joined SUMS because I am passionate about engaging all people in mathematics regardless of their background. I also want to be in an environment where I can share my interests in mathematics with other people. As the President, I hope to maintain a healthy environment for everyone involved in mathematics. I also hope to establish stronger connections with others, and see more interaction between professors, graduate, and undergraduate students in mathematics.

# Vice President External

Jingran Xu
jix009@ucsd.edu
Cognitive Science - Machine Learning and Neural Computation
3rd Year, Revelle

I joined SUMS in my freshman year as an eager undergraduate student and publicity committee member. It was a spur of the moment thing since SUMS was one of only two math clubs on campus. But as I got more involved with the club, SUMS opened my eyes to fields closely related to math but at the same time, vastly different. This community brought me many resources, connections, great memories, and most importantly, many close friends. I hope to continue and improve this work, and share this experience with all of you in the UCSD mathematics community.
