Liu at Modeling Workshop

Ph.D. candidate Piaomu Liu was among 31 graduate students from 28 institutions who participated in the 20th Industrial Mathematical and Statistical Modeling Workshop for Graduate Students (IMSM) in July 2014. The students met for 10 days and broke into five teams, working with mentors from government and industry on real-world problems. The mentors' projects ranged from developing a water purification system to finding where a meteor might have crashed in Russia in 2013. The "Analysis of Self-Reported Health Outcomes Data" group was mentored by Mark Wolf, SAS, and Kenneth Lopiano, SAMSI and Duke.
