Graduate Mathematics student Nichole Pompey won first place for a presentation during the 2014 Emerging Researchers National Conference in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Pompey’s presentation, titled “A Randomized Algorithm for Tensor Decomposition,” was selected as the top presentation in the Mathematics and Statistics oral presentation category.
The conference is hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Education and Human Resources Programs, and the National Science Foundation. It was created to help undergraduate and graduate students enhance their science communication skills and to better understand how to prepare for science careers in a global workforce.
Students participating in the conference delivered oral and poster presentations, attended workshops focused on career and graduate school-preparation skills, and learned about STEM careers in a global context.
