Thank you to everyone who participated in the seventeenth Kenyon–Hoffman Western Washington Community College Student Mathematics Conference at Highline College, and especially to Highline mathematics faculty for hosting the conference.

The eighteenth conference will take place at Green River College on Saturday, February 22, 2025.

2024 Keynote Speaker

Juan Salinas

This year’s featured speaker is Juan Salinas, a doctoral candidate in mathematics at the University of Washington-Seattle specializing in algebraic geometry under the mentorship of Dr. Max Lieblich. He will defend his dissertation in June of 2024 and will be the first in his family to earn a Ph.D. He holds a master’s degree in mathematics from University of Washington and a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona. His research focuses on moduli spaces of planar line configurations. His talk, titled “Journey through Algebraic Geometry and Moduli Theory,” aims to demystify this advanced field, tracing its historical roots and exploring its modern applications.
