About Me

My name is Paige Bright (occassionally seen as Paige Dote), I use she/her pronouns, and I am a senior at MIT studying Course 18: Mathematics. I am interested in analysis, and more specifically, harmonic analysis, projection theory, and geometric measure theory. For the past three years, I have been conducting research under graduate students of Larry Guth, including Yuqiu Fu, Shengwen Gan, and Alex Ortiz. Within mathematics, I am interested in how problems from discrete geometry generalize to the continuum setting using tools such as Hausdorff dimension and Fourier analysis. I am also deeply passionate about education, writing, and research.

For more information regarding the mathematics coursework I have taken or the projects I have been working on, please see the links at the top of the page.
