The mission of the Division of Applied Mathematics rests on research, education, and scholarship. We focus our research and teaching on a wide range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. In particular, we explore the connections between mathematics and its applications in biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, neuroscience, physics and other disciplines at the research and educational levels. Our educational efforts are realized primarily through our graduate PhD program and our four undergraduate concentrations.
Graduate student, Emily Winn, was awarded the "Best Poster" prize
Emily Winn was awarded one of the "Best Poster" prizes at the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Workshop's Poster Presentation by Women Graduate Students at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Denver, CO. Emily's poster, "Unified Topological and Geometric Characterization of Genomic Networks," discussed her work with her advisor, Dr. Lorin Crawford, in using mixture models to find the best method or combination of methods for comparing graphs derived from different data sets at the local and global levels. With this prize, she will have a funded opportunity to attend a conference or workshop at one of eight participating mathematics institutes in 2020.
