STEM Fellowship & Overleaf Empowering Early Career Researchers
By Shelly Miller

Overleaf was recently introduced to an amazing organization - the STEM Fellowship - which is led by STEM students, for STEM students. We are proud to support the STEM Fellowship organization, based in Toronto, Canada, in their efforts to reach out to undergraduate and high school students through events such as the Big Data Challenge (BDC) and Editing 101 scholarly writing workshops.

I started off the new year meeting mathematicians from all over America by representing Overleaf at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, GA. Overleaf was a first-time sponsor at JMM 2017.

Author interview with Alex Halperin, Assistant Professor at Salisbury University's Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

Overleaf is perhaps the best professional thing that's happened to me. I use your website for every single set of (skeletal) notes, exams, and quizzes for all my classes. I also type all my research papers up in Overleaf. I love the instant compilation and split-screen view. I also love the tag system, so I don't have to sort files by folders. Lastly, I like the different templates offered, which I use for letters of recommendation. In short, if I TeX it, then I use Overleaf.

Eventually, when I teach an upper-level class that requires LaTeX, I will teach them using Overleaf. In fact, my colleague has already done so, after the school computers were reformatted and the pathways between MiKTeX and TeXnicCenter got messed up. She begrudgingly tried Overleaf, which she had never used, and her students loved it.

The whole site works seamlessly. I can't thank you enough for introducing this intuitive, wonderful, and free service...I love your website and will be using Overleaf for the near future.

After receiving such a kind email – it means a lot to everyone at Overleaf, and to me personally when we receive messages like this – we asked Alex some follow up questions as part of our Author Interview blog series. This is what he had to say...
