  • Statistical data analysis

  • Visual data representation

Faculty Highlight: Dr. James Lambers

Advisor to the first and only SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) student chapter in Mississippi. Since 2014, the chapter has provided students from across the mathematical sciences with an outlet for networking activities, including tailgate parties, fundraisers, sponsorship of seminars, career panels, and trips to SIAM conferences for presenting student research. Dr. Lambers’ research connects to image processing and oil recovery and many of his students are funded by external fellowships.
