EDITOR'S NOTE: This entry has been modified to reflect changes in scope, time, and venue.

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs provide opportunities for undergraduate students to work closely with faculty and other researchers on a real-world research topic.

The REU program organized by School of Mathematics Professor Michael Lacey aims not only to provide research experience to undergraduates, but also to train postdoctoral fellows to design a program of research study, select students, and supervise students’ research over an extended period.

The Georgia Tech postdoctoral fellows in the REU program are Robert Kesler, Michael Northington, and Andre de Souza. They will be mentoring seven students from Alabama and Georgia Universities:

•Amadou Buh, Perimeter College at Georgia State University

•Korynn Claiborne, Alabama State University

•Samuel Hood, Morehouse College

•Bryson Kagy, Georgia Institute of Technology

•Allison Madson, Georgia Tech

•Jade Redding, Alabama State University

•Emily Smith, Agnes Scott College

At the poster session, these students are joined by 13 others in the REU program directed by School of Mathematics Professor Igor Belegradek:

  • Ken Adams, Georgia Tech
  • Santana Afton, College of William and Mary
  • Nicholas Barvinok, University of Michigan
  • Catherine Chen, Georgia Tech
  • Nhu Do, Mount Holyoke College
  • Sam Friedman, University of Michigan
  • Andrea, Martinez, Georgia Tech
  • Rose McCarty, Georgia Tech
  • Hunter Vallejos, Georgia Tech
  • Yandi Wu, University of California, Berkeley
  • Jun Xiang, Georgia Tech
