Find the Connection, Celebrate His Life

Towson University was saddened to lose the insight of Dr. Reza Sarhangi in July 2016, but the award carrying his name will sustain his substantial legacy. Dr. Sarhangi was a stalwart of the Department of Mathematics, and he'll be remembered for helping find beautiful intersection between mathematics and art – even founding the Bridges Conference in 1998 to celebrate mathematical connections in music, art, architecture and culture. He was particularly interested in geometry in Persian art.
