If you are interested in a research project and/or a reading course, email me and we can set up a time to discuss different topics. Below is a list of university and departmental ressources.

Undergraduate Opportunities

The math department provides opportunities for individual and group research experiences for undergraduates (REUs). Consult the department webpage and email me if interested. We can then set up a meeting time to dicuss research opportuinities.

Additionally, the University provides assistanstships for research or creative projects through the UROP program.

If you are interested in a Summer Research Program, this website provides a list of current and future programs.

Finally, if you are a women interested in studying science and math at the U, the ACCESS Program for Women in Sciences and Mathematics will give you the opportunity to get started with your studies.

Graduate Student Opportunities

If you are interested in graduate studies in applied mathematics, apply to the Department of Mathematics and the University of Utah by filling in the on-line application. Consult the department webpage about what it is like to be a graduate student at the U.
