Tahmassebi’s paper titles and abstracts appear below; he is preparing himself for a career as a data scientist.
Department of Scientific Computing faculty Xiaoqiang Wang and Bryan Quaife, along with Nick Moore and Xiaoming Wang in the Department of Mathematics, are organizers for the approaching 41st SIAM-SEAS Conference to be held Saturday and Sunday, March 18th and 19th. Conference registration, plenary talks, poster presentations and the evening reception will be held at the Student Services Building. Workshop sessions will be held at the HCB Classroom Building.
Professor Anke Meyer-Baese’s research topic entry has been selected as a finalist for Frontiers’ inaugural Spotlight Award. Frontiers is a community-rooted, open-access academic publisher; the Spotlight Award gives the editors of an active and innovative research topic the resources to organize a conference.
Beginning March 30, 2017, SC undergrad Marcelina Nagales will have her research on arrowheads shown in the university’s annual Art in STEM exhibition. Nagales’ submission shows two faces of the same arrowhead that display advances in texture and surface realism by using color. While scanning arrowheads with the 3D scanner in the morphometrics lab, Nagales looked deeper into the capabilities of the equipment, and discovered a way to make scans in multiple colors, rather than the single color they previously generated.
