“The Department offers students an opportunity to explore various aspects of the disciplines in mathematics, which can be a host of diverse fields. The courses are designed to train students in the use and development of mathematical tools and apply them to solve real world problems. As a graduate student in the department, I find it incredibly comfortable to pursue my research on microarray data analysis, which is closely related with complex disease (like HIV, diabetes) diagnosis. The supervision by expert faculty and interaction with fellow students also has helped to shape my interpersonal skills. For those seeking an opportunity to study the basic patterns of the world and choose a professional career in the future, I strongly recommend this program.”
