Steering Committee

Olga Radko was the Founding Director of the LAMC (now called the UCLA Olga Radko Endowed Math Circle in her honor). Olga received her Ph.D. in mathematics from UC Berkeley in 2002 specializing in Poisson Geometry, and worked in the UCLA department of Mathematics ever since. Olga started LAMC in 2007 and led it until her death in 2020.  Please see the In Memoriam page for more information about Olga.

ORMC is now governed by the Steering Committee.  Please see our Leadership Page for more information about its membership. 

Management Team

Oleg Gleizer is the Chief Curriculum Developer at LAMC. He works for the Circle since 2011. Oleg 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 and Economics), typically reserved for college, to the children from age four and up.
Dan Hoff is the Curriculum and Instructional Supervisor for the math circle advanced groups. He received his PhD in Mathematics from UC San Diego in 2016 and now researches and teaches as a postdoc in the UCLA Department of Mathematics, where his primary research is in functional analysis, with a focus on operator algebras and their connections to fields such as ergodic theory and measured group theory. He has been working with the math circle since 2017, when he first had the opportunity to be amazed by its students and program.
