Students present research at international math conference

Eight Youngstown State University students recently presented their research at the National Joint Mathematics Meeting in San Diego, the largest international meeting of mathematicians in the world.

Students and their poster presentations were:

  • Lexi Rager of Bristolville and Marina Pavlichich of Austintown, "Helping Students Make Wise, Data-Driven Academic Decisions.
  • Theoni Kasamias of Youngstown, "Climate Change and its Impact on the Migratory Patterns of Ficedula Hypoleuca and Anser Bachyrhynus."
  • Natalie Halavick of Vienna, Ohio, Sara O'Kane of Youngstown, and Leah McConnell of Hubbard,  "Analyzing New Health Care Placement of Mercy Health Facilities."
  • Elise Eckman of Poland, "Evaluating Kostant's Multiplicity Formula."
  • Leah Bayer of Brookfield, "Modeling the effects of crayfish invasion and drought on hypothetical crayfish population dynamics."

Alicia Prieto Langarica, associate professor of Mathematics and Statistics, and Tom Wakefield, chair of department, advised the students on the research.

The Joint Mathematics Meeting is co-sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and the American Mathematical Society.
