Two University of Guam alumni who participated in the first ever GECCO Summer Math Research Experience (SMRE) have been accepted into grad school!
The GECCO Summer Math Research Experience was held from June 7 to July 23, 2021. Participants addressed issues such as overfishing parrotfish, coral bleaching, and coral diseases using mathematical modeling.
Henry Song, a recent computer science graduate, says that the Summer Math Research Experience equipped him with the tools and skills to pursue a graduate education.
“I have considered applying to grad programs prior to the program, but it was through the advice and guidance of the faculty mentors, research assistants, and overall experience that convinced me to apply to my target school: Seattle University. I hope to follow my dream of becoming a software engineer, and potentially pursue a Ph.D. in the future!” said Song.
Song will attend Seattle University this month.
Regina Mae Dominguez, one of two research assistants who served as mentors for the SMRE students, will attend the University of Washington for graduate school.
