Math’s Usefulness to Ecology Presented by Gaoue at Howard U

NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow Orou Gaoue describes the ways people use tropical forest ecosystems during his talk at Howard University.

NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow Orou Gaoue visited Washington, D.C. last week to inspire Howard University students and faculty to think about real-life ecological questions that mathematics can answer. Gaoue gave a colloquium titled “Modeling the short- and long-term consequences of plant harvest by local people” in the mathematics department to which other departments were invited. Gauoe also met with the chair of the biology department and met individually with several graduate students and faculty members. NIMBioS and Howard University have signed a joint agreement to foster collaborations in areas of research, science and education to promote greater diversity in the cadre of researchers working at the interface of biology and mathematics.
