Undergraduate Student Features

The undergraduate students in the Department of Mathematical Sciences are doing amazing things!  

Many of them are leading the way in cutting-edge, industry-leading research.

Here are just a few of their accomplishments! 




Catherine Berrouet
BS, Mathematics candidate


Ms. Catherine Berrouet took a Preparation for Industrial Careers (PIC) mathematics course sponsored by the Moffitt Cancer Research Center during the spring, 2017.  Catherine and her team member, Jake Nadulek, collaborated during the course, and have co-authored a paper they will present at the Mathematical Association of America's (MAA) MathFest, July 26-29, 2017.

Catherine has submitted the same paper to FAU's Office for Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) in hopes that their paper will be accepted for publication in the 2018 OURI Journal.  

Catherine plans to attend attend the Mathematical Modeling 3-day workshop at George Mason University, June 28-July 1, 2017.  Catherine Berrouet will graduate with as Bachelor of Science degree in the Fall, 2017.  


Elizabeth Manzano
BS, Mathematics, candidate


Ms. Elizabeth Manzano and her colleagues have authored a paper entitled, "A Mathematical Model to Predict Tumor Responses to   Cancer Drugs Based on Dose Response Curves in the Continuous Case."  Elizabeth expects to graduate with a BS in Mathematics in the Spring, 2018.

Elizabeth intends to go work in the aerospace field as a statistician or analyst and then go to graduate school once she gains experience and firmly decides on which career she loves the best!

Elizabeth loves cultivating tropical fruit trees and medicinal plants and will continue with her music studies. 



 Christopher Rutherford, BA,  Mathematics, candidate


 Mr. Christopher Rutherford is planning to participate in the AMALTHEA (Advances of Machine Learning in Theory & Applications)  program, a 10-week, summer research experience ( REU ) funded by the  National Science Foundation during the Summer, 2018.  Christopher is also pursing a minor in Computer Science, and enjoys collaborating with his colleagues here in the Department of  Mathematical Sciences at Florida Atlantic University.
