The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science has provided students with the background knowledge and course work to pursue a variety of interesting career building opportunities both during their time as students through internship programs and as alums in business, industry, education and graduate education.



Levi Angel Levi Angel (class of ‘19) is a mathematics major with a minor in economics. In the summer of 2016, he worked as a Muskie Fellow with Assistant Professor Matt Davis. They collaborated on a research project studying non-transitive dice, which show paradoxical behavior when used to play a simple game. Rather than one die being the best and most likely to roll the highest, these dice are generally strong against some opponents and weak against other. The project explored ways to construct sets of dice that exhibit certain behavior, and the properties of those sets of dice. This led to two papers which have been accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals (Journal of Combinatorial Designs and Involve: A Journal Of Mathematics).


Leah Buck Leah Buck was a member of the class of 2017 who majored in Mathematics and minored in English and German. During the summer of 2015, her research resulted in a coauthored paper on universal differential equations and she presented those results at both the Mathematical Association of America Meeting held at Ohio Northern University April 8-9, 2016 as well as at the Young Mathematicians Conference held at The Ohio State University August 19-21, 2016. The Young Mathematicians Conference is a very competitive conference that accepts only a small percentage of applicants from all across the nation. In addition, during the summer of 2016 she participated in a REU program at Fresno State University. She was one of only eight students selected from over 360 applicants. She coauthored a paper with her REU colleagues on Sufficient Conditions for a Linear Operator on R[x] to be Monotonic, which was published in the Huston Journal of Mathematics. She also presented this research during the AMS/MAA Joint Mathematics Meeting held January 4-7, 2017 in Atlanta. She is currently a graduate student at Purdue University pursuing a doctoral degree in mathematics.


Megan Duke Megan Duke was a member of the class of 2014 who majored in mathematics and completed the AYA teacher licensure requirements in mathematics. In 2013 she published the results of her Muskie Fellows research in the Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal entitled "A Non-Geometric Switch Toggling Problem". She also gave a presentation on the same topic at the Mathematical Association of America meeting at Cleveland State University in October of 2013. She is currently teaching a variety of courses at Riverview High School. Megan recently completed her Master of Science degree in mathematics from Shawnee State University.


danielle hutter Danielle Hutter is a 2007 alum of the department who majored in mathematics and minored in physics. After completing internships with actuarial firms in both her junior and senior year she accepted a position with Findley Davies' Actuarial Services. Her position is an actuarial analyst. She prepares benefit calculations, spreadsheets, databases, actuarial valuations and government forms. She also assists the consultants and actuaries in preparing plan design studies and related projects.


jarod dalton Jarod Dalton is a 2002 alum of the department who majored in mathematics, computer science and business. While at the department he secured a very competitive internship at NASA where he developed a database for an interferometer. Jarod earned a Master's degree in Applied Statistics from the University of Michigan. After working for American greeting corporation for several year's he has a research position with the Cleveland Clinic working on quantitative medical research. He completed his PhD at Case Western Reserve University winning the 2013 Doctoral Excellence Award in Epidemiology and Biostatistics for his dissertation. He also earned an NIH KL2 training award through the Cleveland Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) which only about 10%-15% of applicants receive.
