The UB Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce that Jeremy Kazimer, a junior majoring in Applied Mathematics and Computational Physics, is the winner of the 2020 Math Summer Scholarship. Jeremy is studying network models for complex systems and high-dimensional data under the guidance his faculty mentor, Dr. Dane Taylor. Specifically, the 2020 scholarship supported Jeremy's interest in extending information-theoretic techniques to quantify the structural complexity of social networks and biological systems.
Our 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 Mathematics faculty mentor, and includes a $3,000 stipend.
