Student accomplishments, activities, and awards
- Sarah Long (Spring)
Sarah won a SPUR award for her project, "Life and its Many Layers: Diagonalization of One-Dimensional Differential Operators with Piecewise Constant Coefficients," as well as an additional prize for the highest-scoring proposal.
- Amber Sumner (Spring)
Amber's Fellowship from the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium has been renewed.
- Samuel Dent (Spring)
Samuel won first place in the Integration Bee, held during the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA. He also placed as a runner-up in the Section's Undergraduate Student Paper Competition.
- Anup Lamichhane (Fall)
Anup was chosen for the USM graduate student hall of fame.
- Brandon Hollingsworth (Spring)
Brandon won second place at the 2015 USM Undergraduate Symposium.
- Amber Robertson (Spring)
Amber won first prize in the Master's Paper Competition at the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA. She also won a Graduate Research Fellowship from the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium.
- Samuel Dent (Spring)
Samuel won second place in the Integration Bee, held during the annual meeting of the LA/MS Section of the MAA.
- 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.
- 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.
