Applied Mathematics News

Date: Jul 2014

Nicole Heil is excited to be participating in Stevenson's Summer Science Scholars Research Program (S3RP). She is working with Dr. Neal Miller who does research in astronomy. Nicole is taking data from galaxies that emit xrays and imaging the data to find intermediate black holes. Nicole has had a great experience this summer learning both about a new scientific field and about how research is done!

Heather Drake is part of the Summer Science Scholars Program (S3RP). Students are chosen for this special summer program based on their academic record and letters of recommendation from faculty. She is working with mathematician Dr. Mark Branson developing a map of Baltimore which uses a non-euclidean metric based on the travel time between two points using public transportation. The goal is to measure the curvature of space in this metric at individual points and correlate this with crime rates in the city of Baltimore - their hypothesis is that areas with low or negative curvature will correlate with high crime rates.

Heather finds this research project very interesting. She enjoys learning and working with the software program, Mathematica. This has been a  great opportunity for her to explore a career in research!

Welcome to Gerald Roman, an incoming freshman in Math fhis fall. Gerald is from Perry Hall and is looking forward to living in the residence halls this fall. Gerald is very excited to be studying math and enjoys programming computers. Welcome to the Department of Math and Physical Sciences, Gerald!

One of our incoming Applied Math majors is Marcuss Beverly. Marcuss joins us from Randallstown. He likes that SU is close to his home and looks forward to his college years. Duriing Mustang Day, all future SU commuters entered a raffle drawing for prizes and Marcuss was the recipient of a tablet! In his spare time, Marcuss enjoys playing dodge ball and video games. Welcome to Math, Marcuss!

Welcome to the new applied math students who are joining us this fall! All new freshmen came to campus for a day in June to participate in activities to meet other incoming students, to hear about the upcoming school year, to meet faculty in the department, and to register for classes.
