Our department encourages mathematics and statistics students to participate in highly collaborative research projects. We have a variety of research groups that bridge the gap between theory and practice through the development and analysis of mathematical models. Student researchers often find their projects overlap with each other in theory or practice. For that reason, our department provides an advancing research community that encourages student and faculty dialogue and interaction. We also encourage collaborations with other departments, notably the School of Engineering and the Anschutz School of Medicine.
Additional opportunities include the GK-12 Transforming Experiences Project, a collaborative research experience for STEM graduate students, which pairs students with local middle school teachers and STEM faculty mentors, providing opportunities for close learning communities.
Below are some examples of our students’ research. For additional information about thesis work from our former students, visit our Alumni page.
