Over the course of three decades Dennis E. Slice, Professor of Scientific Computing at Florida State University (Tallahassee), has contributed in many crucial ways to the development, dissemination and innovative application of today's best morphometric methods. His early articles and reviews helped teach biologists about Procrustes analysis and its differences from other approaches beginning well before his actual doctorate was awarded.
Grad student Lukas Bystricky presented a poster on his research entitled, “Modeling 2D Rigid Body Motion Using Boundary Integral Equations,” at a workshop held June 9 – 10, 2017 at Yale University. Bystricky’s research investigates modeling the motion of suspended rigid particles in confined and unconfined domains to help understand how macroscopic properties of suspensions can be aided by a detailed understanding of the motion of suspended particles. SC Assistant Professor Bryan Quaife was also in attendance at the workshop.
SC doctoral students James Cheung and Evan Cresswell are winners of the 2017 SIAM-SEAS awards for best graduate oral presentation and graduate poster presentation. Based on his paper entitled Boundary Condition Approximation for Lagrange Finite Elements by Polynomial Extension, Cheung’s award for best oral presentation recognizes effective presentations delivered by impactful, confident and engaging speakers. Cresswell’s award for best graduate poster presentation was for his research, Computational Model for Local Calcium Dynamics in Astrocytes.
