BS Mathematics, 2006
University of Alaska Southeast
University of California, Davis
Graduating in 2006 from the University of Alaska Southeast, my degree in Mathematics has truly helped me achieve where I am today. Working toward a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of California, Davis, I utilize my mathematical skills daily. An understanding of the atmosphere requires the derivation and interpretation of complex equations that describe the fluid motion of gases, heat transfer, radiation, chemical interactions and reactions, and much more. Thus, I have relied on the skills I acquired working toward my undergraduate degree in Mathematics. These skills not only include those in computation, but even more importantly problem solving skills necessary to approach challenging problems both systematically and with creativity.
