Mathematics and Biochemistry Research Earn Top Prize at Nation's Premier High School Science Competition
Date:11/7/2009

he "logarithmic number derivative," a certain very natural arithmetic function. His research, titled Probabilistic Properties of the Logarithmic Number Derivative, may yield insight into long-standing problems in the number theory.

"Mr. Kunisky's research shows a professional level of technique and knowledge of the field, revealing an unexpected and intriguing coincidence," said Dr. Haynes Miller, Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "His research demonstrates the treasures to be found, even today, in simple and easily stated mathematical problems, and will no doubt stimulate further research in the area."

Among his many academic accomplishments, Mr. Kunisky is currently a member of the National Honor Society as well as the French Honor Society, and is recognized as a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist, AP Scholar with Distinction and Merck State Scholar. He also placed second at the West Point Bridge Design Competition.

Mr. Kunisky was born in Moscow, Russia, and lived there for five years before moving to the United States. His mother is a former chemist and his father a former physicist. Both parents strongly encouraged his inclination towards mathematics, providing an environment conducive to his independent scientific and mathematical development. His mentor was Dr. Alex Kontorovich, Professor of Mathematics at Brown University.

Team Winners

Benjamin Song and Jack Chen, both seniors at Methacton High School in Eagleville, PA, won the team category and will share a $6,000 college scholarship for their biochemistry project entitled Development of a Urine Test for the Early Detection of Cancer. The team's research explored the potential to develop a urine test for the early detection of colorectal cancer, identifying a probable new approach to spot the disease.
