Our undergraduate and graduate programs were represented by a number of students at the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego.
Undergraduate students Jacob Beihoff (Math) and Adam Honts (AMCS) won the prestigious Outstanding Presentation Award in the Applied Mathematics category of the undergraduate poster session. Their poster, entitled Quantifying the Distribution of Urban Vegetation based on Google Street View Images, details the work the students did in the NSF supported Undergraduate Research in Biology and Mathematics (UBM) program.
Undergraduate student Kyle Goryl (AMCS) and fellow students from his summer REU presented a poster on Comparison of Statistics in RNA Secondary Structure Matching Models in the undergraduate poster session. John McLellan, undergraduate student in math, also attended the meeting.
Graduate students, Jingchun Chen, Kathryn Lokken, Thomas Stojsavljevic, Rachel Elizabeth TeWinkel and Martin Vieten gave successful talks on their research in various sections at the meeting. Congratulations to everyone who participated and experienced the largest annual gathering of mathematicians in the United States!
