The CAARMS 18 (Conference for African-American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences) program was recently held at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey from June 27-30, 2012. The CAARMS meetings provide a forum where minority researchers in the mathematical sciences can meet with their peers and find out about each other's work across different mathematical fields.

The student poster competition included five award categories: Theory, Algorithm, Presentation, Modeling, and Undergraduate Research. Cristian W. Potter (pictured), an incoming Ph.D. graduate student in the Department of Statistics, won the Angela E Grant Poster Award for Presentation. Dr. Sean Colbert-Kelly (a recent graduate from the Department of Mathematics, Purdue University) received the Angela E Grant Award for Modeling.

Congratulations to Cristian for his award!
