|Elizabeth Newman wins best poster prize at the Householder Symposium XXI on Numerical Linear Algebra|
|Published Date: 2022-06-21|
The Householder Symposium brings together a mix of established and early career researchers in the field of Numerical Linear Algebra. This meeting is the 21st in a series, previously called the Gatlinburg Symposium, but now named in honor of its founder, Alston S. Householder. The meeting includes a very active poster session. Dr. Elizabeth Newman won the best poster prize for her poster titled “Train Like a (Var)Pro: Efficient Training of Neural Networks with Variable Projection.”

|Dr. Talea Mayo models how climate change may affect our coasts|
|Published Date: 2020-11-02|
Talea Mayo joined the Emory faculty in May of 2020 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics. A computational mathematician, she specializes in developing numerical hydrodynamic models to help predict coastal hazards.
By creating models for storm surge caused by hurricanes, for instance, she is able to investigate the potential impacts of climate change on coastal flood risks. The resulting data may help policymakers and others develop better plans for the safety and resilience of coastal communities.
Among Mayo’s accolades are an Early-Career Research Fellowship from the National Academies of Sciences Gulf Research Program and the Early Career Faculty Innovator Award from the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

|COVID-19 Outbreak Math Modeling Initiative|
|Published Date: 2020-04-27|
The Emory University Mathematical Modeling Association (EUMMA), Alessandro Veneziani (Professor), Manuela Manetta (Lecturer), Longmei Shu (Visiting Assistant Professor), and Maja Taskovic (Assistant Professor) pulled together students and other faculty from related disciplines across campus to compete in April's COVID-19 Outbreak Math Modeling Contest. The winning teams presented their research results for the competition on August 25, 2020.
“The main aim of this initiative is educational,” Veneziani says. “I want students to understand that developing a mathematical model is a creative process. You come up with an idea, introduce some assumptions and then check them with reality to see if you’re on the right track. You have to keep refining your model, keeping it as simple as possible but complex enough to learn something useful.”
Veneziani also has a math modeling project for COVID-19 underway with one of his former students, Alexander Viguerie, who is now a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Pavia, near Milan. Viguerie, a native of Atlanta, began his academic career at Oxford College before coming to the Emory campus for his undergraduate degree and his PhD in math, which he received in 2018.
