Richard Brown is the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University.

Brown is the editor of the book 30-Second Mathematics and has been awarded and nominated for multiple teaching awards.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
