Grants

February 2013
Dr. Edwin M. O’Shea (Assistant Professor, Mathematics and Statistics) and Dr. Eva M. Strawbridge (Assistant Professor, Mathematics and Statistics) received two grants from the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics – $3,125 for "A Multiscale Model of Wiggling Worms" to investigate the locomotion of the nematode worm Caenorhabdidis elegans to explore how molecular level mechanics are converted into organismal motility and $3,125 for "Geometry of Integer Partitions" to study another potential generalization of Euler’s result called the "Alder conjectures" by utilizing techniques coming from the enumeration of lattice points in polyhedra. 
June 2015
Dr. Eva M. Strawbridge (Assistant Professor, Mathematics and Statistics) received $11,000 from the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics to introduce the research process, in the form of projectbased learning, into Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus with the goal of retaining more students, in particular females, in mathematics courses.
