Senior mathematics student, Jenny Tompkins, presents her summer research project paper, “How Knot Theory and DNA Do the Tangle” Sept. 30 as part of a talk series hosted by the mathematics and biology departments.

Tompkins received a $1,500 grant from The University of Texas System Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) this summer to conduct research about this topic. Drs. Casey Mann and Jennifer McLoud-Mann, assistant professors of mathematics, served as her mentors for the project. Tompkins recently presented her paper at the UT System LSAMP conference and won second place out of 34 presentations made by undergraduates from other UT schools.
