Research Opportunities

REU at UVA

2020 Research Experiences for Undergraduates at the University of Virginia

At UVA Math Department

As of Spring 2018, there is a number of faculty members interested in mentoring undergraduate research:

  • Julie Bergner,   319 Kerchof Hall
    Research area: Topology, algebra, combinatorics
    Background needed: Flexible; General Topology and/or Survey of Algebra needed for some projects
    Availability: Spring and Fall 2020

  • Bruno Braga,   229 Kerchof Hall
    Research area: Functional Analysis, Banach Space Theory, Descriptive Set Theory
    Background needed: Real Analysis
    Availability: Fall 2019, Spring 2020

  • Juraj Földes,   322 Kerchof Hall
    Research area: Probability, differential equations and/or numerical analysis
    Background needed: Linear algebra, Differential equations. Probability and Stochastic processes might be useful for some projects
    Availability: Spring 2020, Fall 2020

  • Ken Ono,   210 Kerchof Hall
    Research area: Number theory
    Background needed: Undergraduate courses in analysis, abstract algebra, and number theory
    Availability: Spring 2020, Summer 2020

  • Leonid Petrov,   209 Kerchof Hall
    Research area: Simulation and study of integrable stochastic systems (examples: 1, 2)
    Background needed: Probability, Stochastic processes, coding background
    Availability: Spring 2020, Fall 2020

Outside the Department

There are opportunities to participate in mathematics research at the undergraduate level. In particular, the AMS has compiled a list of summer REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) that are organized at various institutions throughout the US.
