Applied Mathematics Biophysics

Analytical and critical thinking are the most important skills that I gained through my studies in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. It is easy to know what the problem is, but it’s trickier to break it down into solvable parts and find the best way to solve it. After taking math classes, where I had to always be thinking analytically and critically, I found it easier to apply those skills to out-of-classroom concepts. I’ve found this background to be extremely valuable in my career as a soft test engineer at Idexx.
