Congratulations to Katina Tole, a secondary education and mathematics major, for receiving this year's President's Medallion! Katina has been a mathematics major, a member of the Loyola dance team, a tutor for at-risk school children, an active volunteer on campus, and more.
Loyola is forming an ASA Club, with the first meeting in December 1st at 7:00PM in Dumbach 119 with free pizza, ASA gear, and material about national membership! Please fill out this survey, if interested!
Congratulations to Larry Kalesinskas (Biostatistics Minor) and Evan Cudone (Math Major) for presenting their research, "GxA: Developing a Gene Expression Network Visualization and Analysis Tool" at the annual NSF Maize Inflorescence Project Meeting as well as Stritch's St. Albert's Day!
This year, the Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years. When will they win it again? Dr. Perry will show us how we can answer this question using Survival Analysis Techniques. Refreshments will be served from November 4th, 3-4 PM in IES 114 and the talk will begin at 4 PM.
Three Physicists have won the Nobel Prize in Physics for describing exotic states of matter using advanced quantum topology, an advanced mathematics topic that attempts to categorize the properties of space under continuous deformations. Take a look at their work here!
Make sure and come and enjoy cookies and coffee (or tea!) with other friends of mathematics and statistics (as well as your professors)! Tuesdays (2:00) and Wednesdays (2:15), IES 116, throughout the semester!
Congratulations to Maxwell Luetkemeier, a Statistics Masters Student, whose poster, Accurately Placing Landmarks on the Occlusal Surface of Fossil Bovid Teeth: Expert Intelligence vs. Artificial Intelligence, won the 2016 ASA Section on Statistical Consulting Best Poster Award! Check out his abstract here!
The next Faculty in Focus is Dr. Haught, one of our Associate Professors, as well as the Faculty Advisor for the Math Club! Learn more about her, her research and many roles at Loyola and the community!
Barbara Skrzypek has a lot to look forward to this coming summer. The Loyola physics and math major was recently accepted into the prestigious Summer Undergraduate Research Experience program at CERN, Switzerland. This highly competitive program, which pairs students with CERN researchers, accepts only 150 applicants annually from across the globe, and this year, Skrzypek will represent Loyola University Chicago in that group.
The Undergraduate Research Symposium provides an opportunity for Loyola students to present their research from the past year. Be sure to congratulate all of the Mathematics and Statistics majors that participated and presented during the 2015-16 Undergraduate Research Symposium!
