AMLSS doctoral graduate Victor Moreno was recognized this spring with the ASU Hispanic Convocation Outstanding Student Award.  This honor has been presented since 1984 to select graduating students who have demonstrated high academic achievements and service to community. Award recipients are honored at each Hispanic Convocation and receive their recognition during the ceremony.

 

Victor’s was recognized for his work with over multiple years in the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI https://mtbi.asu.edu/), and for serving as an instructor for the Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program (JBMSHP https://jbmshp.asu.edu/).  He has served on the leadership committee for the ASU student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and is a role model and mentor to incoming students in our Applied Mathematics for the Life and Social Sciences graduate program.  He also traveled to South and Central America (specifically Ecuador and Colombia) with me and inspired students (both graduate and undergraduate) by teaching and mentoring them in classes and research projects.  Additionally, he served on a team that prepared and delivered a training workshop on the basics of modeling and data analysis for police personnel in El Salvador.  Victor was instrumental in creating and executing the STREAM program, an academic effort to increase mathematics skills for students of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community,  He works hard to give back to the community he feels has supported him in his own academic endeavors.
