In Spring 2014, Interim Chancellor Kelly awarded 19 “Chancellor’s Research Fellowships” to faculty at CUNY’s community colleges through a highly competitive process. These fellowships fund research in many disciplines during the 2014-2015 academic year. Three of the Fellows are mathematicians. Luis Fernandez from Bronx Community College submitted a proposal regarding the curvature of harmonic surfaces in spheres. Uma Iyer, also from Bronx Community College, will examine representations of algebras of quantum differential operators. Queensborough Community College’s Jonathan Cornick will engage in a longitudinal study of remedial mathematics reform. Congratulations to these faculty.
Stay tuned! Professor Cornick will keep CUNYMath blog readers apprised of his research.
