The Department of Mathematical Sciences is very happy to have three students who have won University GraduateScholar Awards this Spring. Michael Bush received his renewal for a second year of this award.Melissa Fuentes and Lucas Quintero won the award for the first time this spring.
Michael Bush is a 2016 graduate of The College of Wooster, with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Physics.He has passed his preliminary and candidacy exams, and he is being supervised by Constanze Liaw, Assistant Professor of Mathematics. His research is in finite rank perturbations using tools in complex and functional analysis. Michael describes his roots as humble and was taught the value ofeducation from an early age. He also learned compassion from his parents, and he won a campus-wide award at Wooster for his volunteering to help the homeless. He is also active in the Graduate Student Association on campus.
Melissa Fuentes graduated with Bachelor and Master degrees in Mathematics from Montclair State University. She has passed her preliminary and candidacy exams, and is currently investigating an extremal graph theory problem which involves maximizing the number of proper 5-coloring of graphs with a fixed number of vertices and edges. Her advisor is Felix Lazebnik, Professor of Mathematics. Aside from doing mathematics, Melissa trained in classical and modern dance for 20 years, and is also a skilled classical and contemporary pianist. She is currently a voluntary instructor for the UD Zumba Club.
Lucas Quintero graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with Bachelor and Master degrees in applied mathematics. He has passed his preliminary exams, and his research is on dynamics and flow of polymer solutions. His PhD advisor is Pamela Cook, Unidel Professor of Mathematical Sciences, Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Associate Dean of Engineering. Lucas was raised in Colorado, and found that Mines had a strong effect on him because it fostered his love of applied mathematics. He is also anavid hiker and tennis player.
The awards will support each of them for twelve months starting July 1, 2018. Awards are competitive and are based on academic achievement as well as membership in historically underrepresented groups. University Graduate Scholar awards are for one academic year, though students may be nominated for a second year.
