Students Win at JMM

Two teams of NCSU students brought home prizes from the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meeting in Denver. Seniors Macie King, Matt Shelden, and Christopher Schell won the Outstanding Poster Prize for “Modeling Cardiovascular Dynamics in the Presence of Pulmonary Hypertension”. They were mentored by Biomathematics grad student Mitchel Colebank. Senior Nick Randolph took home an Honorable Mention for “Stability Analysis of a Valsalva Maneuver Model.” Randolph was mentored by Ben Randall, PhD (Applied Mathematics), who is currently a postdoc at U Michigan. Both teams were supported under the RTG: Parameter Estimation Methodologies for Mechanistic Biological Models, advised by Prof. Mette Olufsen.
