My name is Morgan Landry, and I am currently a 21-year-old junior at Louisiana State University from Lafayette, Louisiana. I went to Comeaux High School, where I was on the swim team, and was a member of the robotics club. After graduating, I moved to Baton Rouge, where I started studying mathematics and became a member of the Geaux Teach program. Although my parents and two younger brothers still live in Lafayette, I am extremely happy here at LSU, where I am pursuing a degree in Math/Secondary Education with a minor in Philosophy.
Dr. Frank Neubrander and I are currently working to expand upon the research that I did during the summer of 2013 through the Noyce program. Last summer, my research was on the field of sequences and the z-Transform, but now I am working to expand the topic by including asymptotic cases. Each week, Dr. Neubrander and I meet to discuss my progress and talk about any questions I have regarding content I am studying. I am working toward writing a paper and re-writing my current poster to include the new material I have been researching.
After graduating from LSU, I intend to go to grad school to continue my studies and hopefully get a Ph. D in Math Education. In order to prepare myself for this, I am going to continue doing mathematical research with Dr. Frank Neubrander, and present another poster on my updated research in March. Also I plan to apply for a research position at Utah State University to conduct research on education over the summer of 2014. I believe that these experiences will give me the upper hand when applying to graduate schools and help me further understand what is to come in my future.
