What have you done after graduating from Bryn Mawr?

Since graduating from Bryn Mawr College, I have been pursuing a doctoral degree in applied mathematics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

How did your math experience at Bryn Mawr prepare you for your current path?

The analysis skills I developed through the math program at Bryn Mawr have greatly assisted me in developing a strong dynamical systems background, which I will use for my dissertation regarding the modeling of pancreatic beta cells.

Do you have any advice for current math majors?

One piece of advice that I wished I had listened to earlier as an undergraduate is to go visit professors' office hours. I had made it so much harder for myself by trying to do it all alone instead of asking for assistance. Near the end of my undergraduate career, I would stop by Professor Cheng's office and we would have many late-night conversations that went beyond the scope of the classroom. I will always be thankful for my experiences at Bryn Mawr that have helped mold me into the inquisitive mathematician I am today.
