Undergraduate Research Group

For the past several years, I have been significantly involved in guiding undergraduate research projects, mostly under the framework of the Illinois Geometry Lab.. I am running three or four projects each semester, on topics ranging from calculus and geometry to number theory, probability, statistics, and data analytics. Students in my group have presented their work at local and national conferences, participated in outreach activities, won awards for presentations and posters, and have been featured in departmental and university publications; see my Undergraduate Research Page for more.

[3/25/2016] SUMMER/FALL 2016 UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES. I expect to have openings for a variety of projects in number theory, calculus/analysis, probability/statistics, stochastic modeling, and big data analytics. If you are interested, I'd be happy to discuss this with you; contact me at ajh@illinois.edu and send me your cv/resume and transcript.

Math Contests

I have been involved in the UI Math Contest Program since the mid 1980s, and I have been in charge of this program for the past ten years. Our program is among the most comprehensive programs of this kind, and it may be the largest such program offered at a public university. Activities include weekly training sessions and practice contests; several local math contests with substantial prize purses; and participation in prestigious national and international competitions. A poster with an overview of the 2015/2016 activities is available under this link. For more information check out the UI Math Contest Website.
