Title: Phase tropical varieties are topological manifolds

Abstract: After defining some tropical tools and giving an overview of the subject, we prove first that phase tropical curves, that are limits of algebraic smooth complete intersection curves, are topological manifolds. We generalize this fact to phase tropical k-planes, and then to phase tropical varieties that are limits of algebraic smooth complete intersection varieties (work is in progress).

Title: My Role in the Actuarial Science Program

Abstract: Since August 2012, I have directed the actuarial science program in our department. Under my direction, the program has undergone changes that I will discuss. These changes have helped promote the growth of the program over the last seven years, increasing its enrollment by 138%. I will also discuss my service activities within the department, our college, and the university, and show how these activities support my role as a senior advisor for our undergraduate program.
