|Department of Math's Seminar Series||Department of Math's Seminar Series||Ewing, Room 336||Dr. Gregory Herschlag, a nationally renowned expert on gerrymandering from Duke University, will be speaking as part of a unique collaboration between the Departments of Mathematical Sciences (MATH) and Political Science and International Relations (POSC). Dr. Herschlag’s will talk on "Quantifying Gerrymandering: Sampling and Analysis of the Space of Redistricting Plans”. Herschlag received his Ph.D. in mathematics from UNC Chapel Hill in 2013. Since then, he has been in a research position at Duke University in both the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Mathematics. He began working with Jonathan Mattingly on algorithms to quantify gerrymandering in 2016; within this collaboration, Greg has analyzed and quantified gerrymandering in the North Carolina congressional districts, the Wisconsin general assembly, and the North Carolina legislature. This work was incorporated into expert testimony in Common Cause v. Rucho, North Carolina v. Covington, and was featured in an Amicus brief that was brought up during the oral arguments of Gill v. Whitford in the Supreme Court; the work was used as key evidence in Common Cause v. Rucho which concluded that the North Carolina congressional districts are unconstitutional. Greg is currently researching algorithms to sample the space of redistricting plans and is co-managing an undergraduate researched based course on understanding gerrymandering.
