Alumni Highlight- Stephanie Walker

Stephanie Walker graduated from UCO in May 2020, with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. She started working on a research project with Dr. Britney Hopkins in the spring of 2019, that morphed into a group project that included Dr. Mike Fulkerson, Dr. Erin Williams, and two fellow undergraduates. Stephanie started the project by learning and teaching basic difference equations to the group. She then moved forward adapting a technique for determining the existence of solutions for even-ordered differential equations to even-ordered difference equations using techniques drawn from functional analysis.  Throughout the 2019-2020 academic year, she refined her work under a student Research, Creative, and Scholarly Activities (RCSA) grant. She has presented her work both regionally and nationally at Oklahoma Research Day, the Joint Mathematics Meetings, and the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics. Stephanie is currently a graduate student and teaching assistant in Mathematics at the University of Kansas.
