Ondracek to present at national math conference
Chloe Ondracek, Minot State University mathematics major and member of the undergraduate research group advised by Narayan Thapa, assistant math professor, was selected by the Council on Undergraduate Research to present "Identification Problem in Parabolic Partial Differential Equation" at the Conference of Research Experiences for Undergraduates Student Scholarship in Arlington, Va., Oct. 27-28. The conference will feature keynote speakers and presentations by students, faculty and administrators in all disciplines, and it offers opportunities to meet with representatives from the National Science Foundation, other government agencies and faculty recruiters for graduate programs.
Students can learn about NSF funding for graduate study and about career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Ondracek will stay an additional day to meet representatives on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., or federal agency program officers.
Researchers, faculty and students from institutions across the United States will attend the conference. The 218 attendees include participants from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Columbia University, Rutgers University, Purdue University, Texas A & M University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, University of Michigan and the Smithsonian Institution.
In September, Ondracek presented her research at the North Dakota Undergraduate Mathematics Conference at MSU, as well as at MSU Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Monthly Talk Series. She will present at the Mathematical Association of America North Central Section meeting at South Dakota State University Oct. 18-19, along with Johannah Miller and Nicholas Taylor, fellow members of Thapa's undergraduate research group.
