Sanaira Mondegarian, a junior majoring in Applied Mathematics, has won the 2019 Math Summer Scholarship. The scholarship provided the opportunity for Saniara to study random matrix theory and applied network science under the guidance of Dr. Dane Taylor. Her research is concerned with the problem of community detection in complex networks.

The annual undergraduate research award, established in 2017, is a result of a scholarship endowment by The Summer Math Foundation, Inc. of Amherst, New York. The endowment supports a six week, full-time summer program for the selected undergraduate student to work with a UB Math faculty mentor, which includes a $3,000 stipend.
