CWU Fall Mathematics Seminars Begin September 26

Curious about mathematical modeling? Virtual reality? Check out the fall 2018 Mount Stuart Mathematics Seminars beginning September 26.

“Our first seminar is a meet and greet,” said Jean Marie Linhart, mathematics professor and organizer of the seminars. “In addition, several of our students who did interesting research programs and internships over the summer will bring a slide or two describing what they did, how they found out about the opportunity, and how to apply.”

Linhart is especially excited about the November 7 seminar. CWU alumnus Nick Cramer, from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, will give a presentation on virtual reality. Cramer will be visiting with another CWU alumnus, Russ Burtner, who is working in the same area. In addition, Alexa Williams, who is from PNNL human resources, and oversees student internships and outreach, will provide information about internship and employment opportunities for CWU students and graduates. They will be available throughout the day to meet with interested students and faculty.
