# Achievements

### Publications and achievements submitted by our faculty, staff, and students.

Faculty Kamila Larripa Mathematics

Kamila Larripa coauthored the paper "A Tutorial Review of Mathematical Techniques for Quantifying Tumor Heterogeneity" which was accepted for publication. The work considers intra-tumor and inter-patient heterogeneity and mathematical models for precision medicine. It will appear in Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering.

Student Charlin Duff, Skye Gibney, Eric Malekos Mathematics

Charlin Duff, Skye Gibney and Eric Malekos received an Honorable Mention for their participation in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling. Their project used mathematical modeling to make policy suggestions with the goal of mitigating the detrimental effect of plastic waste on the environment.

Faculty Bori Mazzag, Sonja Manor, Liza Boyle and Ruth Saunders Mathematics

HSU sub-award of the NSF-Funded SUMMIT-P Consortium. SUMMIT-P is a consortium of institutions committed to curricular innovations in the first two years of mathematics to improve the training of students in partner disciplines. Boyle, Mazzag and Saunders attended a SUMMIT-P workshop in Denver, Colorado.
