Careers in Injury Prevention Webinar
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit’s Webinar Series

Dr. Margie Peden was the former Coordinator of the Unintentional Injuries Prevention unit (UIP) within the department for Management of Noncommunicable Diseases, Disability, Violence and Injury Prevention at World Health Organziation in Geneva, Switzerland. She has coordinated work in the areas of unintentional injury prevention (including road safety, drowning and burns prevention), injury surveillance/surveys, and alcohol and drug-related injuries. Peden has authored more than 25 manuals and has published more than 55 peer-reviewed articles.  

Ms. Gayle Dipietro was the Global Road Safety Partnership’s (GRSP) Global Programme Manager of the Bloomberg Philanthropies road safety initiatives 2010 - 2016. Over the last 15 years, Dipietro has provided relevant technical and practical road safety advice to Governments, corporate and civil society organisations in over 50 low- and middle-income countries. Since 2010, representing GRSP, Dipietro also chaired a subcommittee (Pillar 4: Safer Road Users) of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration.

Dr. Abdul Bachani, Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bllomberg School of Public Health and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit will moderate this webinar.

Event Image  CTL Teaching Toolkit: Access and Experience: Creating Compelling Course Content for Today’s Visual L
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

Please join CTL for our next ​Toolkit Workshop - Access and Experience: Creating Compelling Course Content for Today’s Visual Learners. The session will be moderated by our Video Production Coordinator and will focus on methods and best practices instructors can employ to create meaningful content for today’s learners. The discussion will involve sharing some of the most innovative content created by faculty and CTL over the last two years. Participants leave the session with a deeper understanding of creating dynamic visual content for their own courses. 


We encourage onsite attendance, but the workshop will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at Recordings will be posted to our Toolkit Events page at a later date. No registration is needed. If you have any questions, please contact or your Instructional Designer.

Tyrus Berry "What geometries can we learn from data?."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Tyrus Berry,George Mason University Abstract: In the field of manifold learning, the foundational theoretical results of Coifman and Lafon (Diffusion Maps, 2006) showed that for data sampled near an embedded manifold, certain graph Laplacian constructions are consistent estimators of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on the underlying manifold. Since these operators determine the Riemannian metric, they completely describe the geometry of the manifold (as inherited from the embedding). It was later shown that different kernel functions could be used to recover any desired geometry, at least in terms of pointwise estimation of the associated Laplace-Beltrami operator. In this talk I will first briefly review the above results and then introduce new results on the spectral convergence of these graph Laplacians. These results reveal that not all geometries are accessible in the stronger spectral sense. However, when the data set is sampled from a smooth density, there is a natural conformally invariant geometry which is accessible on all compact manifolds, and even on a large class of non-compact manifolds. Moreover, the kernel which estimates this geometry has a very natural construction which we call Continuous k-Nearest Neighbors (CkNN).
Wei Zhang "Modular cycle, lattice-counting and AFL."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Wei Zhang Abstract: Following the first lecture, we introduce certain high dimensional generalization, through the study of modular cycles, i.e., special algebraic cycles on the moduli space of abelian varieties with certain additional structures. We will then discuss two (parallel) aspects: (1) the AFL (arithmetic fundamental lemma) connecting the modular cycles over p-adic fields to lattice-counting, and (2) a “continuous" version of the AFL concerning the Green current for the modular cycles over the complex number.
