We are pleased to announced that Department of Mathematics and Statistics professor Hermann Eberl, together with Dutchman's Gold Inc of Carlisle, was awarded an Engage Grant by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) for the development of a mathematical model to describe the physical conditions in Langstroth Beehives, such as temperature, humidity, and flow currents. The model will be used to analyze beehive winter configurations in extensive computer simulations.
Professor Hermann Eberl, together with professors Mark Lewis (Univ. Alberta) and Frithjof Lutscher (Univ. Ottawa) will be spearheading a Thematic Semester on Emerging Challenges in Mathematical Biology at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences in Toronto, from January to June 2018. The Fields Thematic Semester is international in scope, and will bring dozens of Long Term Visitors and Postdoctoral Fellows to Southern Ontario to engage in collaborative research on current topics in Biomathematics.
We are pleased to announce that Department of Mathematics and Statistics professor Monica Cojocaru has been awarded an NSERC ENGAGE grant. The research funded by this grant proposes to analyze changes in prevention policies against viral infections (enteric, influenza, etc.) that can be implemented in a child care setting, beyond the currently mandated ones, in accordance with current Public Health of Canada guidelines.
We are thrilled to announce that Department of Mathematics and Statistics professors Matt Demers and Kim Herder have been announced as the winners of the 2016 UGFA Distinguished Professor Award for Innovation in Teaching. The recipients of these awards are selected from nominations made by students and colleagues in recognition of their impressive contributions to University teaching.
