March 26, 2020


GUELPH, Ontario – In recent years, students at Centennial Collegiate Vocational Institute have been working with professors at the University of Guelph to further advance their skills.

This year, Professor Ashlock has been working with grade 11 student Andy D. Ashlock is a professor of mathematics and statistics at the University of Guelph.

Andy was taking grade 12 Advanced Placement Calculus and was looking for a new challenge. As a result of this, his teacher Ruth Tanner introduced him to Ashlock.

Eight months after meeting Ashlock, Andy has now become the first author on a peer reviewed scientific publication entitled Clustering Julia Set Examples to Enhance Evolution of Fractal Parameters. This publication has been accepted to the 2020 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation.

In addition, Andy has received the top tier of honour through the University of Waterloo’s Canadian Computing Competition and has been invited to write at this year’s national competition.

Great job Andy!
