Congratulations to Mathematics PhD student Chris Rackauckas!


 Rackauckas TsukubaAward 09201710/09/17 - Chris Rackauckas, a Mathematics Department graduate student researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Qing Nie, won the Best Speaker Award for his student talk at the Tsukuba Global Science Week conference, September 24-27, 2017. Chris is also the recipient of a Ford Foundation fellowship and an NSF GRFP fellow.

The title of Chris’ talk was “The Hidden Information in Biological Randomness.”  This talk discussed how randomness (noise/stochasticity) in biological experiments can be used to distinguish between models which are the same in their average behavior, how noise in biological systems can be controlled, and displayed how hindbrain segmentation in the developing zebrafish hindbrain requires a specific amount of noise in order to produce proper development. 


  Congratulations to MCSB PhD student Lara Clemens!
