William Yu earns prestigious Hertz fellowship

Indiana University Bloomington alumnus Yun William Yu has been named a 2012 Hertz Fellow. He is the first person from IU to be awarded the honor, which is considered to be the nation's most highly competitive and prestigious graduate fellowship in the applied sciences and engineering. 

Yu plans to pursue a doctoral degree in applied mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, having been inspired by the elegance of using mathematical abstractions to solve real-world problems. Future research interests include performing large-scale data analysis and using mathematical models to explain biological phenomena.
