Mason Scientist receives funding for program of research and learning in applied mathematics and computational science

Padmanabhan Seshaiyer, Professor, Mathematical Sciences, received $34,200 from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics for: "Program MASTER: Modeling, Analysis and Simulation for the grand challenges through innovative Training, Education and Research - A SIAM Simons SITE (George Mason University)."

Each year, the SIAM-Simons Undergraduate Summer Research Program will establish five SITES across the United States for a six-week program of research and learning in applied mathematics and computational science. One faculty mentor and two students at each site will work together for these six weeks. Students will learn how to conduct scientific research, effectively communicate mathematics and computational science principles, and will gain an improved understanding of how they can pursue a career in applied mathematics and computational science. Students and mentors from the five sites will come together via videoconference to present their work, participate in professional development activities, and engage in community-building initiatives to bring all participants together and foster a strong sense of belonging. Seshaiyer is the faculty mentor and Mason is one of the five SITES chosen by SIAM-Simons funding for this inaugural opportunity.

This funding began in April 2023 and will end in July 2024.
