Abstract

Mathematical modeling allows researchers to address questions and test hypotheses that may not be feasible to study otherwise. The Summer@ICERM 2024 faculty advisors will present a variety of research projects centered around approaches to using mathematical modeling for making predictions and determining associated preparations and necessary preventions in the fields of epidemiology, precision nutrition, and sports analytics. Faculty will guide the development of appropriate models and computational tools that can aid in answering fundamental questions in these fields.

During the eight-week program, students will be introduced to the research topics through interactive lectures. Afterward, students will work on their projects in assigned groups of two to four, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. Students will meet daily; give regular talks about their findings; attend mini-courses, guest talks, and professional development seminars; and practice coding. Students will learn how to collaborate mathematically while working closely with their teams to write a paper detailing their results.
