Please join us for the Oral Preliminary Examination of Leah Leiner.
Date: Monday, April 11, 2022
Time: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Location: Wachman 527
On behalf of everyone involved in this year’s Mathematical Modeling Course, we would like to invite you to attend the following final presentations:
11:50 AM - Exploring the Stability of Running Lizards With VMI-SLIP (in collaboration with Tonia Hsieh’s lab, Department of Biology, Temple). Presented by Nour Khoudari, Vahid Mahzoon, Jacob Woods
12:30 PM - On Optimizing the Stretchability of Mozzarella Cheese by Way of Rennet Coagulation Time (in collaboration with Linden Dale Farm,Lancaster County, PA). Presented by Andrew Higgins, Madison Shoraka, Nicole Zalewski
In the modeling course student teams collaborate with industry partners who pose an open and relevant research question at the beginning of the semester. Supported by weekly update presentations and discussions with faculty and industry partners, the teams develop new strategies, based on mathematical modeling, to tackle the problems.
Information about past events can be found here: https://math.temple.edu/research/groups/applied/modeling/
We hope to see you there!
Best,
Isaac Klapper, Gillian Queisser, Benjamin Seibold, Daniel Szyld
You are invited to attend final project presentations for MATH2121: Mathematical Modeling and Simulation on Thursday, April 21 from 11:00 am - 12:20 pm in Tuttleman Room 401B.
The tentative presentation titles are the following:
MATH 2121 is a new course in the department that focuses on agent-based modeling techniques. Over the course of the semester, students learn of different agent-based models and develop skills on how to implement them in Matlab. For the course project, students choose a topic of interest to them and create agent-based simulations investigating different questions on that topic.
Hope to see you all there.

The CST DEI Committee is hosting an in-person event Friday, May 6 at 11:30 am to watch the movie “Coded Bias” and then have a follow up discussion at 1:00 pm in SERC 108. The film “Coded Bias” explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all.
It will be a wonderful opportunity for the CST community to get together, discuss bias in AI, and enjoy a boxed lunch together at the end of this semester. Participants may also choose to watch the movie (access through TU library) and then join us at 1:00 pm for the discussion. Please register if you plan to attend the movie and discussion or just the discussion so that we have accurate numbers for planning.
Please register to attend and get a boxed lunch: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd3p19rqW58APvelmXpJJmPKS5N0piR-d5jasjV4YGTHacH4g/viewform
