Summer Research Programs:
Kristen Bales, a junior double major in Mathematics and Computer Science, accepted an offer from Rochester Institute of Technology's Research Experience for Undergraduates where her research project will use extremal graph theory to investigate functional connectivity of the human brain in athletes.
Ty Frazier is a junior Mathematics major and he gained admission into ETSU's Ronald McNair Program. He will participate in the summer pre-research internship, where students build foundations including research designs and methods, preparation for the graduate record exam, and research presentation skills.
Zach Helbert is a senior Mathematics major who was admitted in a summer undergraduate research program hosted by Indiana University. His project relates to dynamical systems with an emphasis in chaotic signals with reduced noise.
Jennifer Houser, a junior Mathematics major, will be exploring fast-spiking interneurons in schizophrenia in the context of network dynamic models at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute of Ohio State University.
Alex Quijano, a junior dual major in Mathematics and Computer Science, accepted an offer from the Maryland Robotic Center of University of Maryland t o join their Research Experience for Undergraduates program. His project will involve robots of size between 1mm and 100mm, with the potential to enhance capabilities in manufacturing, medicine, reconnaissance, search and rescue, etc.
