How does DNA move? How do cells communicate with each other? When it comes to these questions, it’s easy to think of molecular biologists behind the words. But as physics and mathematics senior Sullivan “Sully” Bailey-Darland knows, there are many more voices asking.
Mathematics and statistics are two of the quickest-growing fields in the country, and it's not hard to guess why. In part three of this series, we examine some of the data-driven research that is helping usher in a new era of climate policy and action.
Michael Kupperman was among the 20 percent of applicants accepted for a Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The paid 10-week internship program is designed to encourage undergraduates and recent graduates to pursue STEM careers through research experiences at one of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories.
The Department of Mathematics has been offering 8-week, NSF-funded research programs in mathematics and theoretical computer science for undergraduate students every summer since 1987, called the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program.
