Many of our math and computer science majors complete research projects with our faculty. Below are some of our recent undergraduate research posters, presentations, and publications.
Spring 2019 Undergraduate Research
Spring 2019: Joshua Baktay - Lead author of peer-reviewed publication
Undergraduate math and physics major Joshua Baktay is the lead author of a peer-reviewed publication in SPORA: A Journal of Biomathematics. In this paper, Joshua and his co-authors present a computational model of neural activity in the amygdala during pain. This work was completed under the advisement of Dr. Rachael Neilan (Math) and Dr. Ben Kolber (Biology). The publication is available online for open access. Great job, Joshua!
Fall 2018 Undergraduate Research
Fall 2018: Andrea Sajewski - Co-author of scholary publication
Andrea Sajewski, double major in biomedical engineering and mathematics, is a co-author on a recently published article in Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The publication is available online here. Amazing work Andrea!
David Berdik, Computer Science major, presented his research paper at the Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS). His research on using character n-grams to identify authors was guided by Dr. Patrick Juola, Professor of Computer Science.
Fall 2018: Andrea Sajewski - Top 10 undergraduate finalist
Double major in biomedical engineering and mathematics, Andrea Sajewski, presented her poster at the Society for Women Engineers (SWE) (http://societyofwomenengineers.swe.org/) Collegiate Research Competition in Minneapolis. Congratulations on being one of the top 10 undergraduate finalists!
Summer 2018 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
Summer 2018: Joshua Baktay - Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium Presentation
Undergraduate math and physics major Joshua Baktay, presented his research in computational neuroscience at the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium on July 27th. Josh participated in the 10-week Pain Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) this summer with advisor Dr. Rachael Neilan.
Spring 2018 Undergraduate Research and Scholorship Symposium
Four of our majors presented posters at the Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium on April 11th. Derek Prijatelj and Nicholas Marshman (advised by Patrick Juola), Andrea Sajewski (advised by Stacey Levine), and Joshua Baktay (advised by Rachael Neilan) displayed their research in mathematics and computer science. Joshua Baktay received an honorable mention ($100 prize) for the BSNES Excellence in Research award.
