Setting the Stage for Excellent Research: Community Building at MTBI

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Building community is a constant practice and the Mathematical Theoretical Biology Institute knows it. The Mathematical Computational Modeling Center at Arizona State University brings Dr. Holmes back for the fourth year to kick off the MTBI program. The summer of intensive applied mathematics for undergraduate students is characterized by intense collaborative projects that have students developing research skills on issues they care about. For graduate students and faculty to work alongside and in support of new research projects (conceived and completed in a summer), they need to be able to improvise and work as a research ensemble. And they do it with amazing style.

Improvscience will be providing a community building workshop and offering coaching for faculty and students as they strengthen their abilities to build with everything—the questions, skills and interests of their summer colleagues.
