Life at Wittenberg
Graduation Year: 2009
Major: Biochemistry/Molecular Biology
Departmental Activities: I did a REU in mathematical modeling at NC State. Additionally, I did a Departmental Thesis with Dr. Parker. I was able to present results at both national and regional meetings.
Extracurricular Activities: Primetime Springfield Christian Youth Ministries
Most Helpful Classes: Analysis/Abst. Alg. –expanded how I think about problem-solving and the use of logic
Calc II/III/Matrix Alg.-fundamental tools for working in the sciences
Comp 150 – enhanced problem-solving skills and helpful to learn a little more how the computer (“black box”) works
Courses Wish Taken: Statistics (especially if there were a course specifically about analyzing data)
Fundamental statistical questions come up fairly often in the sciences, and most “non-math” people resort to “plugging into equations” instead of knowing what to do.
Computational Modeling course- (I think Witt might have one now…) It would be an interesting blend of math and the physical sciences.
Most Helpful Experiences: Taking the time to interact with the professors-it helped academically, often yielded good advice, and can be quite entertaining
Grad School: Johns Hopkins, School of Medicine
Graduation Year: still working….
Degree: PhD in Pharmacology
Marital Status: On my way…
New Hobbies: Biking, Touring D.C. with Math Alum Andy “Bater Tot” Bates, reminiscing about the good old days
