Student success stories!

University of Minnesota (04/18/2018)

Congratulations to Yorkinoy Shermatova for being accepted to the University of Minnesota with funding for their PhD program. She will be joining two other recent CCNY Graduates, Maria Sanchez and Chen Shi.

Hear about Yorkinoy's Story

After receiving my BS from Samarkand state university ( Samarkand, Uzbekistan) I worked as a research assistant there. In 2015, I got accepted for the MS in Mathematics program of CCNY. I truly enjoyed wonderful lectures from faculty members and made a lot of friends here. This place actually helped me realize that I might have a chance in academia in future. One of the schools I applied for PhD program was University of Minnesota. I was very delighted when I got an offer since I heard a lot of great things from my friends Maria Sanchez and Chen Shi (graduates of CCNY, current PhD students of UMN).

I am very grateful to the faculty and staff of Math department of CCNY since I had a great experience as a student and an adjunct here.

I want to thank Prof. Bak, Prof. Santoro, Prof.Steinberg, Prof. Flatto, Prof. Bou-Rabee for amazing lectures. I would also like to thank Prof.Ocken and Prof.Auth for helping me grow as an adjunct lecturer. I also want to thank Jason Redman and George Brathawaite for being there all the time whenever I needed help.

I will miss CCNY and will do my best to be a good representative of this school at UMN.

Miami University SUMSRI (04/13/2018)

Congratulations to Vincent Filardi for being accepted into the Summer Undergraduate Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (SUMSRI) at Miami University for 6 weeks, expenses fully covered! He is one of eight students selected for the program. Continuing the trend of CCNY students applying to summer programs, he will be studying dynamical systems.

Hear about Vincent's story

I chose this program because due to its GRE prep, a chance participates in rigorous mathematical research, and to network within mathematics outside of the CCNY sphere. I was also given an offer for WPI’s REU, but it was much more concerned with industrial math.

My advice to other students is to prepare earlier unlike I did and apply to as many REU’s and hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

As a transfer student form Norwalk Community College and only 2 semesters at CCNY I am extremely fortunate to participate in Miami’s 2018 SUMSRI. My intent at the SUMSRI is to utilize its resources to enrich my passion and to turn my curiosity into a career in academia. I would like to thank all the people that helped me in the process: Professor Daupern, Professor Karnowski, Professor Hanson, Professor Santoro, Dr. Vanessa Morest, Jeffrey Bettz and my girlfriend Maddy Vose. ”

Also, in the spirit of diversity of CCNY I am a first-generation college student.

University of Houston Dynamics (04/10/2018)

Congratulations to two of our undergraduates, Casey Bolles and Pavel Javornik! They were accepted to the University of Houston's Summer School on Dynamical Systems, expenses fully covered! The Department of Mathematics at University of Houston will host the sixth annual Houston Summer School on Dynamical Systems from May 16-24, 2018. The school will use short lecture courses, tutorial and discussion sessions, and student projects to explore various topics in dynamical systems.
