Jasmine Osorio travelled to the Mathematical Science Research Institute at the University of California Berkeley for a summer research experiences during the summer of 2011 the topic was Mathematical Finance.

On November 22, 2011 the York College Tensor Scholars Program in association with the Office of Undergraduate Research hosted a talk by Jasime Osorio titled, Summer Research in Mathematical Finance at Berkeley.

During her talk she shared her summer research experiences.  She explained she worked on while taking part in a research experience for undergraduates at the prestigious university as well as encouraged students in attendance to look into and apply for such programs themselves.

Jasmine Osorio is an undergraduate majoring in Math at York College.  Working under the guidance of Dr. Rishi Nath, she was able to obtain a grant from Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI).

With this grant she was able to spend several weeks at University of California Berkeley studying mathematical finance. Jasime explained that she enjoyed sharing her experiences while encouraging her peers and labeled the event refreshing.
