Among the students were the six members of the U.S. International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) team, who are coached by Carnegie Mellon Associate Professor of Mathematical Sciences Po-Shen Loh and a team of assistants. Under Loh’s direction, the U.S. Team has taken first place at the Math Olympiad in the past two years.]]>Mon, 10 Jul 2017 00:59:59 GMTMathematical SciencesPo-Shen LohMathematical Sciences Professor Irene Fonseca Joins the Abel Committeehttp://www.cmu.edu/mcs/news/pressreleases/2017/0619-Fonseca-Abel-Committee.htmlMon, 19 Jun 2017 16:05:00 GMTMathematical SciencesIrene FonsecaFiguring Out the 3D Shape of Molecules with a Push of a Buttonhttp://www.cmu.edu/mcs/news/pressreleases/2017/0619-2D-3D-Structure.htmlRoberto R.
