Life at Wittenberg
Graduation Year: 2010
Major: Mathematics and Economics
Minor: Computational Science and Chinese
Department Activities: I had two wonderful internship/research experiences with some professors from our department after my sophomore and junior years.
Extra Curricular: Martial Arts Club
Advice: Take as much math as you can for you simply never can have enough of it. Even at the beginning phase of my graduate school career, I cannot emphasize the importance of the math enough, especially in the field of Economics.
Most Helpful Courses: While every math class I took at Wittenberg were all incredibly helpful, the most helpful ones were Real Analysis, Differential Equations and Optimization for they dovetail nicely with the graduate curriculum.
Most Helpful Experiences: My experience back at Wittenberg was incredibly helpful in preparing me for graduate school. In particular, the two summer experiences played a very important role in my graduate school application for they gave me a sense of what research is all about.
Courses You Wish You Would’ve Taken: I wish I had taken Mathematical Statistics but professor Andrews was on sabbatical back then.
Graduation Year: 2015
School: Vanderbilt University
Degree: PhD in Economics
First Job: None unless being a graduate student is considered a real job (which I do).
Marital status: Single
New Hobbies: Taekwondo, Classical Guitar, Traveling and Photography
