To highlight the vital and diverse work that academic student employees perform at the University of Washington, UAW 4121 is introducing an “ASE of the Week” media campaign. Our featured ASE for this week is Harishchandra Ramadas, a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics. This term, Harishchandra is one of several ASEs independently teaching MATH 324: Advanced Multivariable Calculus I. The work of Harishchandra and his colleagues is essential to their department: ASEs are teaching five of the seven MATH 324 classes offered this quarter.
