FIU’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics welcomed 14 undergraduate students from across the United States for its first ever summer Research Program for Undergraduates (REU).

The Applied Mathematics REU allows students to participate in research programs in areas of differential equations and analysis with applications in other scientific disciplines.

For University of Tennessee Knoxville student Diana Son, applying to the program was an easy decision.

“I really liked how it highlighted minorities in women,” Son said. “I also liked how it focused on partial differential equations, specifically Fourier analysis.”

The National Science Foundation-funded program is led by Mathematics and Statistics Professor Svetlana Roudenko and is comprised of 14 undergraduate students from nine different colleges and universities. Of those students, 43 percent are female and 50 percent are Hispanic.
