Sam Kaufmann is a sophomore at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science. He is currently pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science, and is also completing a double major in discrete mathematics and logic. In the spring of 2009, along with Andreas Kavountzis, he underwent research in the field of applied group theory. Under the guidance of professor Richard Statman, he and his partner used group theory to solve the oval track puzzle in the general case. He is currently looking forward to working at Kennedy Space Center this summer as part of an internship for NASA. Send Email
