Undergraduate Research Opportunities For Winthrop Students
Winthrop University REU-Bridging Applied and Theoretical Mathematics. This National Science Foundation supported program funds eight students from accross the US for a nine week research experience in mathematical biology. Winthrop students are encouraged to apply.
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.
Winthrop University Research Council: An internally funded program which supports student and faculty collaborations.
Additional 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.
