2017 Research Experiences for Undergraduates at Emory University
Dates: June 5 - July 14, 2017.
Math Building, Rooms E406 and E408
- Hannah Larson, (2017 Schafer Prize Winner, Harvard University)
- John Duncan, Assistant Professor.
- Jackson Morrow, Emory PhD Student.
- Jesse Thorner, NSF Postdoc, Stanford University.
- David Zureick-Brown, Assistant Professor.
- Ken Ono, Asa Griggs Candler Professor.
Basic InformationKen Ono has been organizing REU programs since 2003 (formerly at U. Wisconsin (Madison) from 2003-2009). He has advised over 100 students including 5 Morgan Prize Winners and 5 Schafer Prize winners. The REU alums have won numerous other honors including Marshall Scholarships, NSF Graduate Fellowships (over 30), etc...
We are organizing a summer Research Experience in Mathematics for the summer of 2017 on the beautiful campus of Emory University (adjacent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)). We seek to fill 10-14 openings in the REU. Most of the participants will be US citizens or permanent residents who are presently enrolled in a US undergraduate institution or high school. We have offered openings to high school students who are adequately prepared for the program. NSF supported participants will receive a $5000 stipend and also free accomodations.
