Mathematics major Saki Nakai has received a Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) award to support her summer research on mathematical modeling of psychological disorders, with a particular focus on bipolar disorder. Saki is an Honors scholar double majoring in Mathematics (with an option in mathematical biology) and Psychology and minoring in French and Music Performance.
This SURE project will be an interdisciplinary project that will bridge mathematics and psychology. Saki will work with Professor Vrushali Bokil on her research. The SURE program provides students with a stipend for 11 weeks of full time research, and an additional $500 for research expenses to support their project..
