BSc Pure Mathematics, 2020
The IDEAS Fund provided support which enabled me to work on a summer research project abroad. My project was through a Mitacs Globalink Research Award and took place at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. My research was in the field of computational number theory and in particular, it focused on the integer factorization problem. I researched various factoring algorithms, with an emphasis on the General Number Field Sieve.
