The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the CAAM department at Rice University. Computational and applied mathematics are as exciting and important as ever in this age of data-driven decision making. The development and analysis of new algorithms are at the core of research performed by CAAM faculty and students. Excellence in research and education drives the departmental activities. As a testament to our mission, our alumni have successful careers in the private sector, national laboratories and academia.
I hope you will find the departmental website to be a wonderful resource. I am always happy to meet with prospective students and CAAM friends. I also look forward to connecting with our great alumni.Â
