Congratulation to Dr. Neal Miller on his publication, "Bent-Tailed Radio Sources in the Australia Telescope Large Area Survey of the Chandra Deep Field South" in The Astronomical Journal. SU students enjoy learning about Dr. Miller's work in radioastronomy and several of them have already particpated in research with him.

The Department of Mathematics and Physical Sciences is very excited to start the 2014-2015 year!  The start of a new academic year always brings wonderful energy and excitement to campus.  It also gives us a fresh start with new programs, ideas and plans.

More details will follow on this blog- stay tuned!

WELCOME to our new students and WELCOME BACK to our returning students.  We hope you’re as excited about the upcoming semester as we are!

Math Senior, Josh Allison, had a great summer at his Capstone Internship working at Maxim Healthcare Services.  Josh was involved in many aspects of the business, invoicing clients, making collection calls, and working on the company's unapplied list by researching the source of payments. "I work with a lot of systems that all tie together at the end of the day."

Josh really enjoyed the friendly environment at Maxim and how employees were available to help with questions. He also noted that he has learned how to work better in teams as well as individual. All in all, this was a great experience for Josh and will help him find a job when he graduates!

Josh is shown here behind his mountain of paperwork and with his trainer at Maxim, Shannon. 

Applied Math junior, Nick Cassera, is participating in the Summer Science Scholars Research Program with Physics Professor, Dr. Will Hodge. "My project is quite complicated," Nick explained. In brief, he is measuring the geometric properties of energy bands in a variety of one-dimensional crystals. Nick is having a great summer, learning a lot and applying his background in math to science.

Rising junior, Michele Collingsworth, is spending her summer working with Dr. Lynne Hodge in our Summer Science Scholars Program (S3RP).  Dr. Hodge is a Postdoctoral Associate within the Division of Marine Science and Conservation at Duke University.  Her research project focuses on fin whale calls detected in the waters off of North Carolina. Michele is thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved in such exciting research!
