Math Student Accepted for Summer Research Program

Brunswick, GA Junior Matthew Cullens will be out of town this summer, participating in a research program at Brigham Young University in Utah.

From June 8 through August 17, the math major from Soperton, Georgia will be doing research in condensed matter physics. The summer program is funded by the National Science Foundation.

“Some of our math students have expressed interest in doing undergraduate research as independent study during the summer months, remaining here rather than traveling,” Dr. Victor Vega, Associate Professor of Mathematics, noted. “Having students who want to work in higher order mathematics is highly motivating, particularly as their only reward is the challenge of doing good mathematics. As a faculty member, such enthusiasm is very exciting.”
