Universidad de Concepcion Visitors

June 06, 2017

Our department hosted 3 visiting students from Universidad de Concepcion earlier this Spring. This is part of a longer-term initiative to build research links with the Mathematical Engineering department there; a previous visitor is now a PhD student in our department (Sebastian Dominguez).

The three students were supervised by Professor Weiran Sun and Professor Ben Adcock.

Please see news articles about their visit below (they even were interviewed on Chilean TV about this!)
