UIC LAS Mathematicians and Statisticians to Join Collaborative Group for $15.5M NSF-Funded Math Institute

Mathematicians and statisticians from the University of Illinois at Chicago will join a collaborative group of researchers representing three other leading research universities in Illinois as part of the new Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation.

Funded with a five-year, $15.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF, the University of Chicago-based institute aims to bring powerful mathematical ideas to bear on key contemporary scientific and technological challenges, while enriching scientific research and workforce development in Chicago and the state of Illinois.

“UIC mathematicians and statisticians are excited to be involved with IMSI in building new research collaborations and industry partnerships to work on these urgent problems while also enhancing workforce development in the region,” said Brooke Shipley, UIC professor and head of mathematics, statistics, and computer science and co-principal investigator of the grant.
