A mathematics major lays the foundation for a career of collaboration and unique discoveries.

Most of the hottest scientific fields today are at the intersection of many distinct disciplines with the goal of using complementary approaches to understand a common phenomenon. The study of mathematics and logical rationale prepares students to grasp these different disciplines and communicate between them in an effective manner.

Working at the intersection of computational modeling and life sciences, I am able to garner different techniques, create a systematic approach to use them, and provide insight that is unique to my background and interests. An undergraduate education majoring in mathematics not only opens the door to a myriad of career opportunities, but also gives students the ability to carve out their own path and area of expertise.
