Harlan Miller Lecture and Awards Dinner (March 28, 2016)
Professor Emeritus Harlan C. Miller, who was chairman of the department until her retirement in 1966, died in April 1981. In her honor the Harlan C. Miller Lecture Series in Mathematics was inaugurated in the spring of 1982. The Trammell Crow Family Foundation provided initial funding.
This year's speaker is Dr. Alicia Prieto-Langarica, a Mexican Assistant Professor at Youngstown State University. She received her PhD from the University of Texas at Arlington in August 2012. Her research interests focus on applications of mathematics to biology and the social sciences, especially in upscaling discrete individual based models to population level continuous models. Some of her projects include: infection control on medical implants, mathematical modeling of bone creation and metabolism, sleep and thermoregulation, cell movement in multiscale systems, among others.
Every year, all Math and Computer Science majors are invited to the Major's Luncheon with the faculty in the department. Sign up invitations are sent out by email. RSVP no later than TBA. We hope to see you there!
Date and time: TBA
Location: MCL, Room 410
