The Visiting and Early Scholars’ Experiences in Mathematics Research Experiences for Undergraduates (VERSEIM-REU) is an intensive ten-week summer research program in applied and pure mathematics. VERSEIM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates under grant DMS 2050412 and the Department of Mathematics at Tufts University. 

VERSEIM scholars will be mentored by faculty members and graduate students in the Department of Mathematics and the VERSE Program at Tufts University. Many of our events will be joint with scholars in the VERSE program and other REUs at Tufts University. VERSEIM 2021 will be virtual and will run from June 1 to August 10, 2021. Depending on the lifting of COVID-19 's restrictions, we plan to bring the participants to Tufts campus for the last week of the program. 

Four research projects will be offered this summer:

  1. Computational aspects of geometric group theory, directed by Drs. Kim Ruane and Genevieve Walsh
  2. Numerical analysis, directed by Drs. James Adler and Xiaozhe Hu
  3. Applied and numerical harmonic analysis (frame theory), directed by Dr. Kasso Okoudjou
  4. Algorithms in limited data tomography, directed by Dr. Todd Quinto
EligibilityThe program is open only to US citizens or permanent residents who are current students  majoring in mathematics or related fields at any US college or university. Our program is aimed at students early in their college career, and we are committed to enhancing the educational experiences of first-generation or underrepresented undergraduate students.

Stipend: Up to $6000, for the ten weeks. Students may also receive a food and housing allowance, if needed.
