NSF REU Site: Research Training for Undergraduates in Mathematical Analysis with Applications in Allied Fields

NSF logoNSF-DMS-1852288This REU Site is supported by the National Science Foundation, and this support is gratefully acknowledged. We are excited to have recruited several talented and energetic undergraduates for the 2019 REU Summer Program:

  • Blake Allan, Baylor University
  • Margaret Brown, University of Maryland at College Park
  • Emily Eckels, Emory University
  • Miko Jiang, Mount Holyoke College
  • Steven Jin, University of Maryland at College Park
  • Justin Kim, Vanderbilt University
  • Gregory Michajlyszyn, University of Rochester
  • Donald Rung, Sewanee: The University of the South
  • Nafisa Tabassum, York College of City University of New York
  • Brian Tobin, Harvard University
  • Carolyn Valenti, Bucknell University

 

General Information

From Drummondville, Québec, to San José, California, to Urbana, Illinois, to Rochester, New York, to Boston, Massachusetts, to Chattanooga, Tennessee—I suppose this makes me someone with great wanderlust and a keen interest in exploration. J’ai une imagination débordante—tu le sais bien. Before drifting into mathematics, I spent many moons at Orion Instruments Incorporated and Trimble Navigation Limited designing in-circuit emulators and GPS firmware for navigation, tracking, data collection, and timing—memories! After receiving the Ph.D. degree in 2007 from University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign under advisor Alexandru Zaharescu, I worked for University of Rochester as a postdoctoral faculty under the supervision of Steven M. Gonek and for Boston College as a visiting assistant professor. During this time I also worked on prime numbers with Daniel A. Goldston at San José State University. I joined the faculty of University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2011 and currently work as Associate Professor of Mathematics.
