Southern Methodist University Research Training Group (SMU-RTG) Principal Investigator and Department of Mathematics professor Alejandro Aceves will present at the annual American Mathematical Society Committee on Education conference October 1. The presentation will highlight the activities and accomplishments of SMU-RTG Fellows.

The SMU Department of Mathematics was awarded a $2.3 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant in 2019 to build the SMU-RTG—a collection of interdisciplinary teams made up of mathematicians, engineers, chemists, and neuroscientists that collaborate with junior scholars and provide training in modeling and computation. The long-range goal of the RTG programs is to strengthen the nation’s scientific competitiveness by increasing the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences.

Aceves will also participate in a conference panel discussion on how to establish inter-institutional collaborations to impact diversity, equity, and inclusion intentionally and positively. Additional panelists include experts from Institut des Sciences Mathematiques, NSF, and representatives from sister societies and disciplines.
