Andrés J. Rodríguez Aponte will begin his doctoral studies next September in the doctoral program in Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, of New York University. André’s area of interest is biomathematics, specifically in mathematical applications to human physiology.
Andrés will receive the MacCracken Fellowship Scholarship from the Henry M. MacCracken Program.
In 2015, Andrés participated in SAMMS (Sampling Advanced Mathematics for Minority Students) at Ohio State University. In 2016 he participated in a joint internship between the Mathematical Biosciences Institute of Ohio State University, and Arizona State University. Product of his research work is the presentation entitled Parameter Identifiability on a Mathematical Model for Prostate Cancer Treatment. During his last year of undergraduate studies, he worked on the research project numerical methods for partial differential equations applied to a two-dimensional nephron model under the supervision of Dr. Mariano Marcano (Department of Computer Science).
