Research Experience for Undergraduates in Applied Math and Modeling

​​​​​​​Welcome to the Applied Math and Modeling REU site at UHD

Students will be modeling biological processes and solid mechanical structures based on experimental measurements using analytic and computational mathematical techniques.  The research projects are collaborations between Mathematics and Natural Sciences departments at UHD and the Civil Engineering department of the University of Houston. The program will be offered annually starting in 2017, and run for 8 weeks each summer (May 29 - July 21 in 2017). Please tour this website for more information about our program!  W------e welcome enquiries at any time from prospective students who are interested in participating in the program.  The research projects are interdisciplinary, and involve mathematical modeling in mechanics of solids and biology. The students in each  team and their mentors will collaborate on a complete research cycle: running experiments, processing the data, building and parametrizing models, and exploring them through numerical simulations and theoretical analysis. The deadline for new applications is February 1 for each year of the program. For further information, please contact us by email reumod@uhd.edu or contact one of the program mentors personally using the information below.
