Applied Mathematics Group Activities

In addition to several interdisciplinary research projects, the current activities of UMKC Applied Mathematics Group include

(1) organizing Math & Stats Research Day (MSRD),
(2) providing Applied Mathematics Public Lecture Series (AMPLE), and
(3) professional service to the community.

Details of each activity are given below.

1. UMKC Math & Stats Research Day (MSRD)

The MSRD is an annual one day conference organized by the faculty members of the Applied Mathematics Group. It provides a platform for students and faculty to publicly present their research and scholarly activities in mathematics, statistics, and their applications in various fields. This event is open to all students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff. In a broad context, interdisciplinary studies with some applications of mathematical or statistical methods would be suitable to present in the UMKC Math & Stats Research Day.
