For his vital contributions to interface of dynamical systems, spectral theory, and mathematical physics the university will promote Dr. Zhenghe Zhang to Associate Professor, effective July 1. The Math Department congratulates Dr. Zhenghe Zhang and wishes him continued success in his remarkable career.
Fulbright Scholar Award
The UCR Mathematics Department proudly announces that Dr. Mark Alber was selected for the Fulbright US Scholar Award in the academic year 2023-2024. The award will support his extended visit to the Mathematical Institute, University of Leiden, The Netherlands, to collaborate on the project titled: Combining Mathematical Modeling and AI Methods for Studying Formation of Shape and Structure in Developing Tissue.
John C. Fay Fellowship
The Math department is thrilled to announce the establishment of its John C. Fay Fellowship. This fellowship will give partial support to a graduate student who will give a series of lectures as a preliminary to each Victor Shapiro Lecture. The preliminary lectures will be known as The Big C Seminar in Mathematics.
SIAM UC Riverside
The SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Student Chapter is established in UCR. The purpose of this student chapter is to organize activities that foster the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society, and to promote research in applied and computational mathematics, and interdisciplinary studies in general.
To learn more about the SIAM student chapter, visit the website https://sites.google.com/ucr.edu/ucr-siam-student-chapter or contact the faculty advisors, Dr. Heyrim Cho and Dr. Jia Gou.
The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing a collection of micro-tutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to connect calculus with applications in various subject matters. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice. The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired. For details, please visit its website: https://microtutorials.ucr.edu
Math Alliance: Providing educational success to underrepresented and first-generation students is an important part of UCR's mission.
"Our goal is simple: we want to be sure that every underrepresented or under-served American student with the talent and the ambition has the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree in a mathematical or statistical science."
If you are interested in becoming a Math Alliance Scholar, please feel free to contact Dr. Matthew Durham. The benefits include access to Math Alliances Facilitated Graduate Applications Process and possible funding to go the the Alliance's Field of Dreams conference.
