My name is Heewon Hah, and I am a freshman majoring in Mathematics at Louisiana State University. I am also a member of the Honors College. I have lived in Baton Rouge for eleven years and attended McKinley High School. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching Korean variety shows, and spending time with friends and family. After I get my Bachelor's degree, I plan on applying to a graduate program in applied mathematics.
I am working on research projects with Dr. Oliver Dasbach on applied discrete mathematics. I mainly studied the Leibniz formula for the determinant and used it to prove different properties of determinants. Currently, I am compiling C++ programs for the topics we have covered. I plan on continuing to do research with Dr. Dasbach, and this summer, I will work on a group research project for the Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
In the fall semester of 2015, I participated in the GeauxTeach program and had the opportunity to student teach fourth graders at Bernard Terrace Elementary School. To continue the teaching experience, I hope to tutor math or help high school math clubs such as Mu Alpha Theta.
