Mann will be joining the mathematics faculty at Cornell University this fall. Previously, she held a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professorship at UC Berkeley, a postdoctoral position at MSRI, and a visiting position at the Institut de mathématiques de Jussieu. 

Among her accolades is an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellowship (2019), an NSF Career Award (2019), and the Mary Ellen Rudin young researcher award (2017).
