Dr. James Curry is concerned with problems at the interface of numerical methods, matrix theory, and applied mathematics and Data Science related smart and connected communities. Curry is 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 advantages. 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 students and a TCP PhD student.
