Math is Changing the World - Find Out How

Math is changing neuroscience by gaining a better understanding of how neurons change due to trauma or aging. Math is changing cities by modeling what would happen if vacant land were turned into urban farms. Math is changing societies by exploring the interactions of social insects with each other and with the environment. Math is changing public health by assessing the impact of climate change on malaria transmission dynamics. Math is changing the environment by predicting the nighttime warming and Urban Heat Island effect caused by urbanization and conducting mitigation strategies. Visit our Math Research room to find out more.
