Dr. John Alford, Associate Professor of Mathematics, specializes in Mathematical Biology. In addition to teaching a variety of courses, from Calculus to Statistics to Analysis, Dr. Alford recently published a chapter, entitled "The Virtual Reptile: Mathematical Models and Simulations of Thermoregulatory Strategy," in Reptiles in Research by SHSU's own Dr. William I. Lutterschmidt.
With the generous support of the National Science Foundation, Sam Houston State University is proud to announce the Sam Houston State Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Mathematics Program (SAMREU). The 2015 Program will run from June 1, 2015 to July 31, 2015. Project areas for 2015 include:
1. Mathematical Modeling of Ecosystems (led by professors John Alford and Ed Swim)
2. Knots and Links (led by professors Brandy Doleshal and Taylor Martin)
3. Strongly Regular Cayley Graphs (led by professor Ken Smith)
Participants will receive a $4,500 stipend, round trip transportation to and from the program, and paid housing. For more information, click here.
