Student Research

Main content start

Students of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) are a diverse, interdisciplinary group, with interests and research conducted at the intersection of applied math, statistics, computer science and applications.

ICME Students design state-of-the-art mathematical and computational models, methods, and algorithms for engineering and science applications for bioinformatics, geosciences, computational finance, and more. Student's research advances disciplinary fields by designing and improving computational approaches in collaboration with engineers and scientists.
