Topic: Math Meets Data
Transitioning from math proofs to natural language research.
Figuring out how to put theory into practice is not always straightforward. Real world data, especially natural language data, can put up quite a fight. In this talk, I will share my experience learning how to apply the lessons I learned in undergraduate math courses to medical research on the language of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Topics I will touch on include: natural language processing, data science, modeling, and dimensionality reduction.

Students and Faculty hiked at Ecola State Park
At Lewis & Clark, where students learn science by doing science, collaborative research with professors is an academic hallmark. The John S. Rogers Science Program supports several such projects each summer, and this year included multidisciplinary research with an especially timely goal: create a computer game that will teach users how to act in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
Student research presentations
Illia Hayes ’19, from Phoenix, Arizona, was recently awarded the Christine Fredricks Smith Memorial Scholarship
Jordan Gonzalez ’21, has been selected by the faculty of the department for the Mathematics Alumni Scholarship for 2018 - 19.
Megan Glavin BA ’19 and Sema Hasan BA ’18 were selected to present their original research at the 2018 Notre Dame Peace Conference, an event for students from around the world to share their work and discuss issues related to peace studies, social justice, and global activism.
Andrea Dean BA ’17 fell in love with mathematics and computer science at Lewis & Clark and is now using her knowledge at Amazon. She’s solving problems in machine learning at a new prototype store. Our Chronicle magazine caught up with her in Seattle for this profile.
Cameron, who is also associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, received a scholarship from the Clare Boothe Luce Program to attend the HERS Institute at Bryn Mawr College. We sat down with her to discuss how this opportunity will help her Lewis & Clark STEM students.
Summer science research
New members were inducted into Pi Mu Epsilon
Student carved pumpkins for Halloween.
Students and faculty took a dayhike in Mt. Hood Wilderness and enjoyed a BBQ dinner with strategy games.
This summer Lewis & Clark acquired a computational server that will improve the speed and ease of research calculations. Researchers studying computational physics, genetic sequencing, and climate modeling have already begun to imagine how this powerful hardware will enhance their research.
Emeritus Professor Roger Nelsen was recently honored by an international conference celebrating his contributions to copula theory. In this interview, he discusses how he found his calling, what exactly it is he works on, and why he’s been so supportive of Lewis & Clark.
Peter Drake Honored for Contributing Outstanding Introductory Computer Science Curriculum by NCWIT.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Lewis & Clark a $124,965 grant for “Collaborative Research: Modeling Student Activity and Learning on Cybersecurity Testbeds.”
