Ray Salas, Financial Advisor at Northwestern Mutual, visited SU to discuss internships for our Applied Math students.  Ray was a Capstone mentor for Michael Byrd (Applied Math '17) and we look forward to other students working with Ray to get real-life experience in this exciting field.  Ray (left) is shown here with Ellen Roskes (next to Ray), department chair, Ben Wilson, faculty member, and Michelle Schwartz, Student Engagement Coordinator.

Several Applied Mathematics majors and minors attended the 2018 Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference at Towson University.  The meeting was designed to promote undergraduate research in mathematics by showcasing completed original research, selected expository presentations, as well as research projects in progress. In addition to student presentations, the conference featured two invited faculty talks and a panel on career opportunities in government, industry, and academia.​

 

This semester, Applied Math majors Gerald Roman-Gonzalez and Billy Heidel are working on an independent research project with math professor, Dr. Ben Wilson. The research, which Dr. Wilson and Gerald began as a summer research project during the S3RP program at Stevenson, involves analyzing the complexity of constructed languages using tools from information theory.  Gerald and Billy work on the project together each week.  Then, at the end of the semester, they will present their work at the School of the Sciences Poster Session.

 

Applied math senior, Gerald Roman-Gonzalez, completed his Capstone internship at the Social Security Administration in the Analysis Group.  He loved working in the actuary efield as this is directly connected to his career plans.  Gerald presented his poster on "Data Mining Algorithims for Extrapolating Information from the Disability Applicant Pool" at the School of the Sciences semi-annual Poster Session in December.  Great job, Gerald!

Mike Byrd, who graduated in December, completed his Capstone internship at Hunt Valley Northwestern Mutual, a financial planning company.  Mike enjoyed working there and was pleased to be offered a position upon graduation!  Mike presented his Capstone project, "The Effect of Granum on the Financial Industry" at the School of the Sciences Poster Session in December.
