Christopher Thiele and Eric Antley have been selected to receive 2019 Alan Weiser Memorial Fund for Student Excellence travel awards. The computational and applied mathematics graduate students will receive up to $600 towards your travel to upcoming conferences,w here they will present on their research.
With the support, Thiele will attend the SPE Reservoir Simulation Conference in Galveston on April 10-11. His topic of his talk is "Distributed Parallel Hybrid CPU-GPGPU Implementation of the Phase-Field Method for Accelerated High-Accuracy Simulations of Pore-Scale Two-Phase Flow."
In July, Antley will head to Trondheim, Norway for The XV International Conference on Stochastic Programming to present "A Value Function/Global Optimization Approach to Two-Stage Integer Programs with Stochastic Right-Hand Sides."
"Through this travel award I am hoping to learn from and exchange ideas with experts in my field who I would not have the opportunity to meet otherwise," Antley said. "I'm thankful for the chance to collaborate and network with the foremost authorities in my field."
