Dr. James Curry is concerned with problems at the interface of numerical methods, matrix theory, and applied mathematics. Curry is also deeply committed to workforce and mathematics education and the next generation of students who he encourages to 'do more mathematics.' Mathematics, Computation and Communications skills provides students in STEM with significant advantage. Most recent research efforts have been focused on data streams from WiFi networks and their characteristics. This work intersects cybersecurity, data analysis and modeling. I am currently working with groups of undergraduates and a former PhD student.
APPM 3310 - Matrix Methods and Applications
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
