Research resources and awards for undergraduates

The value of research is highlighted in the Faculty of Mathematics through several activities and opportunities for undergraduate students.

Many of our undergraduate researchers have achieved great success under the supervision of faculty members in the Faculty of Mathematics. This story of quantum discovery "Shape from Sound: Toward New Tools for Quantum Gravity" provides a recent example of one such remarkable achievement. Summer research students David Aasen and Tejal Bhamre (now graduate students at CalTech and Princeton, respectively) co-authored this paper with Professor Achim Kempf and were published in the top journal in physics. The article "Using sounds to reveal the shape of the Universe" explains how this research was able to bring together critical insights from mathematics in order to shed light on an important scientific problem.
