Liedeke Sweitzer has received the Undergraduate Research Prize in Mathematics, for the 2014-2015 academic year for her research on "The Peculiar Paths of Plankton’’". Liedeke modeled the path of plankton as a helix and determined the pitch and the radius of the helix as well as the orientation and the translation parameters of the helical axis from the positional data of the plankton. The problem reduced to a difficult minimization problem with many local minima. The data was obtained using a high resolution microscope at DBI. The research was supervised by Professor Louis Rossi.
