The students and faculty of the Department of Applied Mathematics are active in five research areas of modern applied mathematics: applied analysis, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, stochastics (including financial mathematics), and statistics. As part of developing new collaborations, research groups meet in seminars and reading groups to explore mathematics, where student participation is always welcome.

Undergraduate and graduate students are actively involved in faculty research projects. Graduate students regularly publish papers, present their projects at the department’s research seminars, and attend and present research at regional and international conferences. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to conduct research through course projects as well as independent research, which may take place during the summer. Summer research can be funded by department and College of Science stipend awards or faculty research grants. Several courses in the department offer students an opportunity to be involved in independent or group research projects.
