Congratulations to EWU McNair Scholar Tiago Correia! Tiago has been selected for a position in the Central Convergence Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CC-REU) at Central Washington University this summer. The program is a full-time eight-and-a-half-week summer research program.
From the CC-REU website, this internship offers:
…research across a broad range of mathematical topics including topology, number theory, applied math, probability, and statistics. Three projects will be offered every year, with thirteen students recruited annually to work with one of three CWU mathematics faculty mentors. Interlaced with the mathematical research projects are professional development training, seminars by guest mathematicians, and field trips to local sites.
Tiago is a first-generation, low-income student working towards a Bachelor of Science in mathematics at Eastern Washington University. He is interested in several areas of math, including topology, complex analysis, and algebra. He plans to one day attend a PhD program in mathematics, and after that, his goal is to do postdoctoral research and become a professor. Tiago currently works as a tutor at the Kingston Math Tutoring Lab and for PLUS (the Program Leading to University Success).
We will miss having Tiago in the classroom with our cohort this summer, but are so delighted that his skills and hard work have been recognized with selection for this competitive program!
