My passion is to create mathematical models of that type of movement.”</span></span></span></p>Thursday, April 22, 202110743https://uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/news/making-wavesApplied Mathematics professor elected SIAM Fellow

<p>Nicholas Richardson wanted to experience the full potential of his time at university. A well-rounded student in high school, Richardson performed in musicals, played soccer, and participated on the trivia team. It was important to him to get involved and engaged in a number of activities once he started his studies at the University of Waterloo.</p>Wednesday, October 21, 20207699https://uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/news/waterloo-knowing-my-fate-be-youWhere water meets math

<p>Researchers have developed a new model to help authorities determine which sector of the population should get COVID-19 vaccination first.</p>
<p>If a vaccine becomes available in January 2021 or shortly after, it should be given to people 60 years old and older first, since they have the highest death rate from COVID-19. According to the model, if the vaccine becomes available in the summer of 2021, the priority group changes.</p>
