AMAT Students Line Up Plans for the Summer

With the semester drawing to a close, students in the Department of Applied Mathematics are lining up their plans for the summer and beyond. Demonstrating the wide range of applications for the field, their next steps include the following:

David Modlin (AMAT 3rd year) will be a business intelligence intern at Uline, the leading distributor of shipping, industrial, and packaging materials to businesses throughout North America.

Tanner Zielinski (AMAT 3rd Year) will do research on random monomial ideals at Illinois Tech with Despina Stasi, research assistant professor of applied mathematics, and Sonja Petrovic, assistant professor of applied mathematics.

Daniel Kosmas, who will receive his B.S. in applied mathematics this spring, has been accepted to the Applied Math Ph.D. program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also will do some research at Illinois Tech this summer.

Tianci Zhu, who will also receive her B.S. in Applied Mathematics this spring, will pursue a master’s degree in Mathematics in Finance at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Zhu’s research included a project on the Heston stochastic volatility model, which captures how the volatility of an asset price may vary with time.
