AY 2019 Graduates
There were five Mathematics graduates over the 2019 academic year: Evan Carnahan, Marshall Johnson, Michael Bushey, Jasper Soriano, and Zefeng (Felix) Xian. Here are some notes on their awards, achievements, and plans.
Jasper was recognized as a UAS Student Employee of the Year for his work at the Learning Center.
Evan graduated with honors (magna cum laude) and received the Outstanding Mathematics Graduate Award. He will be pursuing graduate studies in the Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin starting Fall 2019. Evan also collaborated with Dr. Eran Hood and Dr. Jason Amundson of UAS on a research publication in the open source journal of the European Geosciences Union, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. This paper, titled Impact of Glacier Loss and Vegetation Succession on Annual Basin Runoff, was a substantial extension of his B.S. degree capstone project.
Marshall is contemplating graduate studies in mathematics or biomathematics, Felix will soon begin his career in the military, and both Jasper and Michael are exploring their options for the time being.
