    Kennesaw State's School of Data Science and Analytics offers opportunity for all levels of students

    May 26, 2021

    Kennesaw State University student Alyssa Venn considers herself an early adopter of data science. While working toward an bachelor’s degree in computational and applied mathematics, she picked up an undergraduate minor in applied statistics and analytics hoping to gain a bit of exposure in one of the nation’s fastest growing fields. At the time, she didn’t anticipate the amount of doors the minor program would open. Today, Venn is one of 4,200 students who are served at the undergraduate and graduate levels by the School of Data Science in Analytics.

    Postdoctoral researchers create opportunities for growth at Kennesaw State

    May 21, 2021

    Kennesaw State University is building its research muscle through the addition of postdoctoral researchers — non-faculty staff who work to advance the institution’s scientific investigation in a wide range of disciplines. Since 2020, Kennesaw State has added 10 postdoctoral researchers across five colleges, including several postdoctoral researchers who are the first for the departments and colleges they serve. It’s a natural part of KSU’s growth as a research university, according to Bill Diong, associate vice president for research.

  • Ants research

    Kennesaw State researcher's study of ant brains might lead to understanding changes in human brains

    April 14, 2021

    Among most species of ants, there can only be one queen. In the case of Indian jumping ants, however, multiple workers can ascend to the throne with a bit of neurological flexibility—which could have implications in the study of regenerating brain tissue in humans. Kennesaw State assistant professor of biology Clint Penick and his co-authors published these new findings today in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
