Finding a research project in semi-related field




First post in the forum, sorry if this is not in the correct board/ needs some reformatting.

I'm an undergraduate Junior in Computer Sciences. I'm about to finish my CS program but I have taken a great interest some fields in pure math while studying for CS.

That being said, I'm leaning towards in getting in a MS/PhD program in math rather than CS at the moment and wish to get some research experiences in math. However, most professor I have talked to about this does not show a general interest of taking me as a volunteer research assistant due to my relative lack of experience in mathematics (I have taken 2 advanced level course and need 2 more to finish the math program). One of the instructor whose class I excelled in told me straightaway that given my current level of knowledge, there is not a lot I can do assist him.

Any suggestions that I can take to get an opportunity at getting a research program in pure math? Or should I settle for CS/ Applied math at the moment and make a transition in grad school?
