Passed Qualifying Exams
Last week, I passed my Quantitative and Computational Biology qualifying exams. This means that I am officially a PhD candidate. I picked up a master’s degree along the way, too! These exams have been on the horizon for so long – it felt fantastic to face them. It feels equally fantastic to put them behind me so that I can finally turn to the research that I have been preparing to do for the past two years.
My research will be in mathematical decomposition. I will be applying algorithms to linear programming problems with relevance to climate change. It is wonderful to be working on problems that are so critically important and potentially impactful. And I am thrilled that I get to do this work alongside a team of passionate and accomplished collaborators / coworkers.
