Mike Hanna, born and raised in Houston, received a B.A. in economics, an M.S. in mathematics with an emphasis in statistics, and a Ph.D. in operations research from Texas Tech University. After a short stint at UT-Arlington, family brought him back to Houston and UHCL. Forecasting and application of mathematical models in finance and real estate are his main research interests.
"When I heard that I received the fellowship, I was very pleased," Hanna said. "However, I feel that if a person is passionate about their field and is willing to work hard to succeed, then good things will happen."
Undecided on how he will use the fellowship money, Hanna expects a good portion of it to be used traveling to conferences and on computer software.
