Later that year she was admitted to the M.S. program in mathematics at Tennessee Tech. On the basis of her Master Thesis she has written two papers "On q-Young idempotents" and "On the Hecke algebra embedding into a Clifford algebra" which have been accepted for publication. They will appear in "Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras."
