CSUMB Students and Faculty Participate in Pacific Math Alliance 2019

Four CSUMB students and two faculty members participated in the Pacific Math Alliance conference on Saturday, October 12, at CSU East Bay. The Pacific Math Alliance aims to increase the number of under-represented minority students who enter PhD programs in the Mathematical Sciences, as well as to improve the quality of mathematical education provided to them prior to the PhD program.

Math major Gabriel Chavez presented his Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) summer research, “Generating Interpretable Reports for a Cancer Subtype Predictions” at the conference. Students Stephanie Tran, Monica Martinez, and Alejandro De Avila participated in the conference and are currently working on undergraduate research with CSUMB faculty.
