Thomas F. Gordon, 1918 - 2014

Tom Gordon, who taught mathematics at NC State from the 1960's until 1985, passed away in Raleigh on July 24. He was 96. Col. Gordon, a World War II veteran, was one of four retired military officers who joined the NC State Mathematics Department during the 1960s after earning Master of Teaching degrees. Col. Gordon's degree was from Duke. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, he supervised new teaching assistants for many years. An obituary is here.

Eye curvature research featured

Research by Professor Mansoor Haider and Ph.D. student Micaela Mendlow on computing eye curvature from imaging data is featured in the Spring/Summer 2014 issue Sciences at NC State, a publication of the College of Sciences. Haider and Mendlow are working with Bioptigen, a Research Triangle Park company founded by NC State physics alumnus Eric Buckland, which makes imaging systems used in ophthalmology.

De Los Reyes wins Astronaut Scholarship

Junior applied mathematics and physics major Mithi (Mia) De Los Reyes has been named the 2014 NC State Astronaut Scholarship winner. Astronaut Scholarships are awarded annually by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation to one student at each of 27 leading US universities. They are intended "to ensure that the United States would maintain its leadership in science and technology by supporting some of the very best science and engineering college students." Mia is also a Park Scholar and has been awarded a Goldwater Scholarship.


NSF features work of Jenkins and Fowler

The National Science Foundation's Mathematical Discoveries web page features several NSF-funded projects each year to help demonstrate how "NSF's public investment in science, engineering, education and technology helps to create knowledge and sustain prosperity." The latest story describes mathematical modeling work by five mathematicians, including NC State Ph.D.'s Lea Jenkins (Clemson University) and Katie Fowler (Clarkson University), that is helping California berry farmers use water more efficiently during California's current drought. Dan Balbas, a berry grower, says, "You've got a given resource, so how do you maximize it to maintain sustainability and do the right thing from an economic and environmental standpoint, marrying the two. It's math. It really is math."
