Mathematics major Ceara Somerville gives poster presentation at 2013 Joint Mathematics Meetings

Ceara Somerville gave a poster presentation at the recently concluded Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego, Calif., entitled "Estimating the Prevalence of Tuberculosis Infection." The poster highlights work Ceara began at an REU last summer and continues currently in collaboration with Helen Jenne at Whitman College. Ceara's ongoing research project involves using sophisticated statistical models to estimate the prevalence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. Her participation in the Joint Meetings is the latest addition to an impressive and growing resume.
