2022 LAS Awards
Outstanding Undergraduate Student
Evan Senkoff will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science in pure mathematics from UCCS. He has lived in Colorado Springs for his entire life. During his time at Air Academy High School, Evan was very active in the marching band. This experience culminated in the opportunity to serve as drumline captain his senior year, as well as to lead the marching band in the 2018 Rose Parade.
Evan has always had a particular interest in algebra, which began when he discovered “Algebra for Dummies” at a local Barnes and Noble. As his mathematical knowledge grew, so too did the opportunities to research in this compelling area of mathematics. In the summer of 2021, Evan participated in an REU at the University of Colorado, Boulder on the topic of Poisson algebras. Furthermore, he has worked with Dr. Greg Oman on a research project concerning strongly unital rings.
In addition to mathematics, Evan is also interested in computer science. Recently, he has discovered a fascination with cybersecurity. Following graduation, Evan hopes to work in the industry, specifically a job that lies in the intersection of mathematics and cybersecurity.
