Electrical and computer engineering sophomore Ernest Chiu ranked No. 28 out of the 4,638 participants in the prestigious Mathematical Association of America’s William Lowell Putnam Competition. His outstanding performance placed him in the 99.4 percentile of all undergraduate students who participated in the December 2017 competition.
“The Putnam Competition is THE undergrad math competition in the United States and Canada, dating back to 1938,” Distinguished Professor of Mathematics Michael Beals says.

The remote Arctic region remains largely a mystery to scientists due to its sheer magnitude. The three-year collaborative project ICEBERG is determined to change that.
Funded by a $1.85 million National Science Foundation grant, the ICEBERG research team will employ supercomputers to analyze high resolution images of the Arctic taken via satellite. The ultimate goal is to provide scientists with a new imagery-computing superhighway that will allow them to study processes at much larger spatial scales than has been previously possible.
