May 26th Math Graduation Ceremony was a roaring success, thanks to the diligent work of ad-hoc graduation committee. We had over 100 zoom attendees, including NSS Dean, math graduates, their friends and families, and members of the faculty. The MEET THE GRADS video is now posted on dept. homepage.
Congratulations to Dr. Eyob Demeke for receiving the 2019-20 Assessment Ambassador award! Dr. Demeke was recently selected for this award by our campus for his work on math assesment.
Pratyush Muthukumar got the Phi Kappa Phi award (1st place overall oral presentation) at the 28th Annual Student Symposium on Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities on Friday, February 28th. His presentation’s title is “A stochastic time series model for predicting financial trends with NLP”. He was selected as CSULA delegate to California State University Statewide Student Research Competition in April.
Joyce Quon will be an intern in the Maximizing Student Potential in STEM (MSP) program at JPL this summer. The title of her project is Data Post Processing and Requirements Verification Tool for Facilitating Thermal Design and Analysis. The purpose is to develop a tool for thermal engineers to save time on processing simulation data.
