I have not settled on my research topic, but when I do it will be in numerical analysis, possibly in modeling stochastic processes.
I am from Kansas City. I was always good at math so I decided to pursue a degree in it. Eventually I found myself at the University of Wyoming, where not only do I get my own office and the chance to study some serious math, but I get to do all kinds of fun stuff like hike, rock climb, ski, etc.
Wyoming sure is a big change from Kansas, and aside from the cold, I couldn't be happier to be here. I got to ski, outdoor rock climb, and climb mountains for the first time out here. As you might be able to tell, I love the great outdoors, especially the mountains.
Did you know a mountain can be generalized to a triangle, and that I taught trigonometry for a year at the University of Wyoming? Which I am pretty sure makes me an expert in mountains.
