CST research mixers offer engaging interdisciplinary seminars

Each semester, the College of Science and Technology hosts a series of Research Mixers for faculty and graduate students. The goal of these seminars is to inspire curiosity and collaboration within Temple’s scientific community. Last month’s Research Mixer was held on October 15 and featured projects on genomics, biogeographics and mathematical modeling. Michael L. Klein, FRS, dean of the College of Science and Technology and the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Science, joined approximately 30 students, faculty and staff and spoke about the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. October presenters included:

  • Professor Ananias Escalante presented research on comparative genomics and diversity of malarial parasites.
  • Marija Stanojevic presented on modeling scientific texts.
  • Dr. Antonia Chroni presented on the delineation of tumor migration paths by using a Bayesian biogeographic approach.
  • Fengjiao Li presented on combinatorial sleeping bandits with fairness constraints.

The next CST Research Mixer will be held on Tuesday, November 12, from noon-1:00 p.m. in SERC, Room 306. Topics for the November event include neutron stars, running up sand dunes, modeling calcium concentration and voice authentication systems. Please register to attend here.
