As a MCAM student, I really appreciated the customizability of the program since it gave me the opportunity to explore topics that truly interested me. I also found that everyone in the program (faculty, staff, and even other CAM students) had a stake in my success and their guidance was essential to my positive experience. If I could give one piece of advice, it would be to take advantage of the resources the program and the university as a whole offer. All in all, I found my time here to be academically and personally rewarding.

During her time as a CAM graduate student, Rebecca was a teaching assistant for statistics courses, and in 2019 she was awarded a Physical Sciences Teaching Prize (of $1000); this prize was last awarded to a statistics course teaching assistant in 2006. The teaching award is based on nominations from students and is given annually to graduate course assistants in recognition of exceptional teaching. Rebecca was one of only three graduate students in the entire Physical Sciences Division to receive this recognition in 2019.
Next Position: Ph.D. Candidate at Courant Institute of Mathematics
The CAM program provided me with a fantastic preparation for applied math research. As a CAM student I took a series of memorable classes in linear algebra, optimization, probability, and real analysis. Due to the flexibility of CAM, I was able to follow my interests and pursue graduate courses in geophysics as well as math. I can't recommend the program and the faculty highly enough.
I'm currently a Ph.D. student at the Courant Institute of Mathematics, developing and analyzing Monte Carlo methods in scientific computing. The CAM program prepared me to quickly complete my preliminary exams and begin research immediately upon coming to Courant.
