According to the summary, their project will “address security concerns that naturally arise in private networks of electronic devices such as what has become known as the Internet of Things (e.g. smart cities, smart homes, smart cars, etc.), and especially private networks within financial and government institutions in which security of communications and of record-keeping is crucial.”

New Faculty Member Dr. Sánchez-Muñiz for Spring 2024

Jan. 26, 2024

The Department of Mathematics at CCNY is pleased to welcome Dr. María Sánchez-Muñiz as a Lecturer of Mathematics, effective Spring 2024. Photo of Dr. María Sánchez-Muñiz She has experience teaching mathematics across a broad range of levels. Her mathematical research explores connections between dynamical systems and modeling climate. Her dissertation is on a model for permafrost thawing and its effects on the global carbon cycle. She is also interested in ecological models and is a collaborator of the Mathematics and Climate Research Network.

Dr. Sánchez-Muñiz will receive her doctoral degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Minnesota in Fall 2023. She has been an instructor and mentor there across various courses and topics in Mathematics and Climate. She has Master's degrees in Mathematics both from Minnesota and CCNY, and undergraduate degrees in Mathematics from CCNY and Accounting from the University of Puerto Rico- Rio Piedras Campus.

His research lies in geometric group theory, combinatorial group theory, and low-dimensional topology. He has both a Master's degree in Mathematics and an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from CCNY. He has experience teaching mathematics across a broad range of courses at multiple institutions in New York. He is joining our department after being a Lecturer at Guttman Community College since 2015, where he worked to develop curriculum using online resources and freely- available materials and served as a mentor for his students in his capacity as a Lecturer of Mathematics. Dr. Brown looks forward to continuing that kind of work at CCNY.

NSF Computational Mathematics program awards grant to Weilin Li

June 14, 2023

Weilin Li received a single-investigator National Science Foundation grant from the Computational Mathematics program. time samples of an exponential sum The project, "Multidimensional and Compressive Super-Resolution: Theory, Computation, and Fundamental Limits" develops novel super-resolution algorithms that will be used for imaging and signal processing and provides their performance guarantees. The applications include remote sensing, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, quantum information theory, and other settings where where high-resolution compressed sampling methods are required. This project moves beyond existing one-dimensional models to the higher-dimensional settings required in a range of applications.
