OTTAWA, ON – The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) is pleased to announce the members of the Canadian team to compete in the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO). The EGMO Math Team Canada for 2022 is:

  • Jiaqi Tang
  • Yifan (Emma) Tang
  • Kathryn Dou
  • Miranda Zhao








Each student competes individually to solve six questions, in a competition lasting two days, four and a half hours each day. The students were chosen largely based on the results of the 2021 Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge written in October and two team selection tests, one in January and one in February 2022.

The team is led by Mariya Sardarli (University of Chicago) and Deputy Leader Diana Castañeda Santos (University of Waterloo). Elnaz Hessami-Pilehrood will be the team observer.

Mariya Sardarli and Diana Castañeda Santos are thrilled that Canada will be continuing its participation in the EGMO.

The Canadian Mathematical Society is grateful for the generous support received from the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo once again, and for the support of the RBC Foundation’s Future Launch program, Actuarial Foundation of Canada and Samuel Beatty Fund. Their support has been paramount and enabled the CMS to send a Canadian team to this important event celebrating girls and STEM.

This year, the EGMO will be held in a hybrid format in Eger, Hungary. The Canadian Team will be writing the competition virtually from Toronto.

About the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO)

The European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad is an international mathematics competition similar in style to the International Mathematical Olympiad, with two papers taken on consecutive days. Participating countries send teams consisting of four female mathematicians of school age. The EGMO was first held in 2012 in Cambridge, United Kingdom.  The 2022 EGMO will be held in Eger, Hungary.
