Matthew's Story

Matthew set out on a wide-ranging academic journey. He tried out several possible majors in the social and physical sciences, conducted research on cancer and heart disease, and worked at an internship where he learned about the process of bringing medicine from the conceptual stage to consumers.

Matthew eventually decided on biomathematics as his major, an interdisciplinary field that uses complex math to advance experimental biology. The major, administered by the Department of Mathematics, is great preparation for both graduate studies as well as research jobs in the pharmaceutical industry and government labs. Matthew hopes to ultimately start his own consulting firm that employs the mathematics behind artificial intelligence techniques to help businesses solve problems.
