Undergraduate Research Opportunities For Winthrop Students
South Carolina Idea Networks of Biomedical Excellence: The SC-INBRE program provides opportunities for mathematics student to participate in faculty guided research projects of interest to the biomedical community.
McNair Scholars Program: An outstanding research and mentorship program for students from underrepresented populations designed to prepare them for graduate school.
WISE: Winthrop Initiative for Stem Educators: In addition to providing scholarships for upperclassmen and graduate students in science and mathematics, the WISE program supports a three week paid internship where students are exposed to research and to educational issues involved in teaching at high needs schools.
NREUP: Mathematical Models of Cancer: An NSF and NSA funded research program supporting students from underrepresented populations.
Winthrop University Research Council: An internally funded program which supports student and faculty collaborations.
NSF-Funded REU Programs: In addition to these on campus research opportunities, several Winthrop students have recently participated in Research Experience for Undergraduates programs. These prestigious programs fund students performing research at institutions throughout the U.S.
My current research focuses is in algebraic geometry and its applications to biology. The highlight of my academic career has been working with undergraduates on projects ranging from math education to algebraic phylogenetics. If you are a past, present or future Winthrop student interested in getting involved research please email me.
