INSIGHT
Emory mathematician to present a proof of the Sensitivity Conjecture
The Sensitivity Conjecture has stood as one of the most important open problems in theoretical computer science for nearly three decades. It appears to have finally met its match through work by Emory mathematician Hao Huang.

 

RESEARCH

SUSTAINABILITY
Student move-out donations divert 87 tons of waste for a good cause
Thousands of Atlanta and Oxford student-residents took advantage of the "Don't Dump It, Donate It" campaign by contributing items to recycle, donate or compost when they left campus for the summer.

RECOGNITION
