The Science Prize for Women 2024

The United States Government, in partnership with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and UL Research Institutes, aims to strengthen ASEAN science and technology capacity and gender equality through an annual UL Research Institutes-ASEAN-U.S. Science Prize for Women (“Prize”). The 2024 Prize will provide promising, ASEAN-national, Mid-career and Senior female scientists with recognition awards from ASEAN and the United States government and UL Research Institutes for their academic and professional achievements.

The 2024 Prize will emphasize the role of female scientists who have used their work to improve the society in sustainable ways and have acted as role models for other women learning, working in, and pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This year, the Prize focuses on the theme of Climate Resilience and Adaptation .

Along with recognition for their achievements, the winners are eligible to receive a cash award of $12,500 each for both the Senior Scientist and the Mid-career Scientist categories. Additionally, the runner-up finalists in each category will receive an honorable mention and $5,000.


"Probability - Statistics Seminar in January 2024" is going to be organized with a report by Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Dung.

Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Dung is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Padova, Italy. She is a former student of the Department of Mathematics - Informatics, Academic year 2013. She defended her thesis titled "Model selection for colored graphical models for paired data", in May 2022. Current research fields Dr. Dung's current work is Gaussian graphical models for paired data, high-dimensional mixture of experts.

Undergradate, Master and Ph.D. students and interested people are invited to participate the seminar.

    • Time: 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, January 25, 2024.
    • Location: Room F207, Campus 1- University of Science(227 Nguyen Van Cu St., District 5, Ho Chi Minh City).

Summary of the report is as follows:

Gaussian Graphical Model is a statistical model that represents the conditional dependence structure between random variables using a graph. The Gaussian graph model is also known as Gaussian Markov random fields or Gaussian network. The structure of a Gauss graph basically consists of two parts: nodes and the edges, in which each node corresponds to a random variable, and each edge represents the conditional dependence between nodes (random variables). This dependence can be directed or undirected. The Gauss graph model is widely applied in various scientific fields including: biology, finance and computer science.

This talk aims to briefly introduce the Gauss graph model and related issues, from theoretical foundations to applications. The main content includes the following sections:

    • Introduction to the Gauss graph model;
    • Application of Gauss graph model (some examples in biology, finance, ...);
    • Select Gauss graph model (Lasso graph model, stepwise backward selection);
    • Introduction to the Gauss graph model with symmetry conditions;
    • Selection of Gauss graph model with symmetry condition (fused Lasso, stepwise backward selection);
    • Applying Gauss graph model with symmetry condition for paired data.

Mathematical Analysis Seminar, Academic Year 2023-2024

  • Title: Rigorous derivation of Michaelis-Menten kinetics in the presence of diffusion
  • Room: F207, Nguyen Van Cu Campus.
  • Abstract: Reactions with enzymes are critical in biochemistry, where the enzymes act as catalysis in the process. One of the most used mechanisms for modeling enzyme catalyzed reactions is the Michaelis-Menten (MM) kinetic. In the ODE level, i.e. concentrations are only on time-dependent, this kinetic can be rigorously derived from mass action law using quasi-steady-state approximation. This issue in the PDE setting, for instance when molecular diffusion is taken into account, is considerably more challenging and only formal derivations have been established. In this paper, we prove this derivation rigorously and obtain MM kinetic in the presence of spatial diffusion. In particular, we show that, in general, the reduced problem is a cross diffusion-reaction system. Our proof is based on improved duality method, heat regularization and a suitable modified energy function. To the best of our knowledge, this work provides the first rigorous derivation of MM kinetic from mass action kinetic in the PDE setting.
