Banks named first Leroy Martin Distinguished Professor of Mathematics

Professor H. T. Banks has been named the first Leroy B. Martin Jr. Distinguished Professor of Mathematics. The professorship was created by alumnus Dr. James Goodnight, CEO and co-founder of SAS, to honor Martin, a longtime NC State mathematics professor. Banks's work integrates innovative ideas from mathematics and statistics into powerful predictive models that have profound effects on patient diagnosis and therapy, as well as the design of clinical trials for HIV and other areas of medicine.

Abernathy wins teaching award

2011 Math Ph.D. Kristen Abernathy, an assistant professor at Winthrop University in South Carolina, has been chosen to receive the 2015 Mathematical Association of America Southeastern Section Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Beginning College or University Faculty Member. The citation notes that Abernethy "has played a vital role in the culture shift happening in the math department, resulting in students who feel like the department is their academic home and have become more engaged in their coursework."

Smith wins Outstanding Research Award

Distinguished Professor of Mathematics Ralph Smith is one of four NC State faculty named winners of 2015 Alumni Association Outstanding Research Awards. Professor Smith was recognized for seminal contributions to the modeling and control of smart material systems and to uncertainty quantification. He is co-author of the book "Smart Material Structures: Modeling, Estimation and Control" (1996), and author of the books "Smart Material Systems: Model Development" (2005) and "Uncertainty Quantification: Theory, Implementation, and Applications" (2014). Professor Smith is the second Mathematics Department faculty member to win an Alumni Association Outstanding Research Award since the award's inception in 1982. The first was Professor H. T. Banks in 1996 and 2008.

Tran named Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Professor

Mathematics Professor Hien Tran is one of four NC State faculty named 2015 Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Professors. The award recognizes outstanding graduate-level teaching. The selection committee noted that letters from students "attested to the extraordinary quality of the mentoring" that Professor Tran "provided both during and after their graduate programs at NC State." Professor Tran is the second Mathematics Department faculty member to be named an Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Professor since the award's inception in 1983. The first was Professor H. T. Banks in 2000.

Natalie Clark wins NSF fellowship

Natalie Clark, a second-year student in the interdisciplinary Biomathematics Graduate Program, has been awarded a National Science Foundation graduate research fellowship. Natalie's research interests are systems biology, developmental biology, and gene regulatory network inference. Her work involves a mix of lab studies, mathematical modeling and statistical analysis. Natalie's Ph.D. advisors are Professors Ross Sozzani (Plant and Microbial Biology) and Alun Lloyd (Mathematics).

Two math majors win NSF fellowships

Alexandria Vail, a senior double-majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science, and James Rowland, a 2013 graduate who double-majored in Mathematics and Physics, have been awarded National Science Foundation graduate research fellowships. Alexandria will stay at NC State to complete an MS in Computer Science; James is a Ph.D. student in Physics at Ohio State. In addition, Robert Younts, a double-major in Applied Mathematics and Physics, and John Nardini, a Mathematics major who graduated in 2013, received honorable mention in the award competition. Robert will start graduate study in Physics at NC State, and John is a Ph.D. student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado.
