Amy Alznauer, recipient of the Indian Nationality Room Scholarship will give us insight on how she came to write The Boy Who Dreamed of Infinity. Her father's discovery of The Lost Notebook of Ramanujan brought about a Ramanujan renaissance in mathematics and had profound implication for the world of number theory. The discovery also had a deep effect on Amy that radically changed her life.
