To give some idea of what I'm looking for, I'll use myself as an example.

I count myself disabled at least four ways: I'm colourblind, autistic, dyspraxic, and have Ehlers-Danlos.

I might talk about:

1) use of colour in mathematical communication; how red chalk makes chalk-and-talks inaccessible

2) how ambiguously-worded maths problems have stymied me in the past, and how to write them more clearly

3) the word problem in group theory, which is just something I'm interested in

I'm organising a series of online public maths talks through Newcastle Uni's School of Maths, Stats and Physics, to be delivered by disabled presenters, taking place this December.

Talks can be any mathy topic, or about your experience as a disabled mathematician.

I need speakers: dm me if interested!

I've never wanted to explain entropy on Twitter, since it's very subtle, and people have lots of crazy ideas about it, which they insist on talking about. I'd much rather explain algebraic topology, where that doesn't happen. But people prefer entropy.
