Nyah Davis named a 2021 Goldwater Scholar

Receiving recognition as a Goldwater Scholar is a very high honor based on academic and research credentials, with 410 awarded this year nationally across all areas of STEM from a pool of approximately 5000 initial applicants (culled first by internal competitions).  Only 26 awards were in Mathematical Sciences.

Nyah has completed a research project with Colleen Mitchell in Math Bio, has a research project underway with Ryan Kinser in Algebra, and is also formally mentored by Phil Kutzko, as noted in the Goldwater award. 

Congratulations, Nyah!
