Ralph Smith named Distinguished Professor

NC State University has appointed Professor Ralph Smith a Distinguished Professor of Mathematics. The position of Distinguished Professor recognizes faculty members who have "achieved recognition well above the criteria for full professor and [are] considered one of the best scholars in their discipline." Smith was recognized for his research in modeling and control of smart material systems, including the development of an influential unified theory that describes hysteresis in ferroic materials. He is the fourth member of the Mathematics Department to be appointed to one of NC State's Professorships of Distinction. The others are Distinguished University Professor and Drexel Professor H. T. Banks, Drexel Professor Tim Kelley, and Distinguished Professor Steve Campbell.


Thomas F. Gordon, 1918 - 2014

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.
