Chris Fradkin, professor e ex-aluno da Universidade da Califórnia em Merced, está indo para o Brasil em busca de “ciência perdida.”
The UC Merced student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) hosted the second annual Central Valley Regional SIAM Student Chapter Conference on April 7.
In only its second year, the conference attracted 85 participants from universities around Northern and Central California. Students from UC Merced, UC Davis, San Jose State and Fresno State came together to discuss their work with colleagues and collaborators.
Chris Fradkin, a UC Merced lecturer and alumnus, is heading to Brazil in search of “lost science.”
Rather than a brain-drain, the 13-country European Union (EU) expansion initiated more than a decade ago triggered a brain-reconfiguration — the rising circulation of knowledge through the increased mobility of highly skilled workers in high-demand fields.
