Math Circle People
Olga Radko is the Founding Director of the LAMC. She received her Ph.D. in mathematics from UC Berkeley in 2002 specializing in Poisson Geometry, and is currently an Academic Administrator at the UCLA department of Mathematics. Olga started LAMC in 2007 and has been leading it since then. She recruits and trains all of the LAMC's instructors, develops curriculum and oversees all aspects of the program.
Oleg Gleizer is the Chief Curriculum Developer and the Lead Instructor of the Early Elementary group at the LAMC. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2001 from Northeastern University of Boston specializing in representation theory and special functions. Oleg sees his mission in inventing ways to present some important parts of modern day Mathematics (and occasionally Physics), typically reserved to college, to the children from age four and up.
Meijke Balay-Mickelson is a second year math major who is passionate about sharing the beautiful ideas of mathematics. He is also a tutor and teaching assistant for AoPS. His research interests are complex and conformal geometry.
Preston Carroll a senior Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics student. He recently finished his minor in Mathematics with a focus on application in topics such as cryptology and game theory as well as mathematical modeling of biological systems.
Sam Gawboy Iím an enthusiastic Math and Physics graduate from UCLA. Iíve always had interest in finding how the areas of my studies interact with and provide greater understanding of each other. In terms of tutoring and teaching, my goal is to have my students not only understand and be able to use what is taught, but to also have an opinion and overall enthusiasm about the topic.
