Student accomplishments, activities, and awards
- Elyse Garon (Fall)
Elyse won a SPUR award for her project, "Modeling the Diffusion of Heat Energy within Composites of Homogeneous Materials using the Uncertainty Principle."
- Haley Dozier (Spring)
Haley won a SPUR award for her project on Combinatorial Game Theory, in particular on a game called Ideal Nim, which is related to important problems in computational algebra.
- Amber Robertson, Corey Yeates, and Kinsey Zarske (Fall)
Amber, Corey, and Kinsey presented their undergraduate research at the Southeastern Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics.
- Brandi Harbour (Summer)
Brandi won a Lucas Award to support a summer research project on numerical integration over general 3-dimensional domains. This is important to the solution of partial differential equations that model phenomena within objects with complicated shapes.
- Chasmine Flax (Summer)
Chasmine participated in the Biostatistics Enrichment Summer Training Diversity Program at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. The program was an 8 week program where underrepresented populations were introduced to biostatistics and work on a research project with a Columbia University faculty mentor. At the end of the program, each participant presented their research in a symposium.
- Alex Cibotaricu
Alex was the Mississippi Chess Association state champion.
- Lorrin Debenport (Spring)
Lorrin presented her Honors Thesis research at the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA.
- Deanna Leggett (Spring)
Deanna won first prize at the graduate student paper competition at the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA. She had worked on Fraction-free computation of determinants.
- Eowyn Cenek (2010 - 2013)
NASA/MS Space Grant Consortium Fellowship
- Elisabeth Palchak (Spring)
Elisabeth presented her Honors Thesis research at the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA.
- Miao Yu (Spring)
Miao won first prize at the graduate student paper competition at the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA.
