Inspired by grandfather, Arya McCarthy’s student research ranged from simulated brains to political polarization

SMU News Originally Posted: May 16, 2017 Graduating senior Arya McCarthy has been a frequent presence on SMU’s campus practically since the day he could walk. John and young Arya McCarthy As a child, he would stroll across verdant lawns, his tiny hand held firmly in his grandfather’s gentle one, as his grandpa, John McCarthy, checked his mail. John McCarthy was a biology professor at SMU, where he taught Mustangs and researched endocrine physiology from the 1950s up to his retirement in 1999. Neither knew then just how grand a role SMU would play in Arya’s life. Fast forward to the summer of 2016.

Nation’s electric grid — a complex mathematical system — is dramatically changing

SMU Research Originally Posted: April 5, 2017 Deregulation of the U.S. electric markets, the emergence of renewable sources of energy and new technologies means there are large risks to the grid. Our nation’s electric grid is changing dramatically due to deregulation of electric markets, the introduction of renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power, and the emergence of new technologies such as the smart grid and electric cars, according to Barry Lee, an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Southern Methodist University, Dallas. “Such changes can lead to large risks in the grid, which are not very well understood,” said Lee, whose research addresses the issue. The electric power grid is a complex mathematical system. In fact, some components of [...]
