August 6-16, 2014Mathematical Modeling in Industry XVIII - A Workshop for Graduate Students
Joint effort of IMA, PIMS and CIMAT to take place at PIMS in Vancouver, Canada
Being able to interact with the mentors and other participants was a breath of fresh air. I was able to discuss new and innovative concepts and technologies with everyone in this workshop. It made my appreciate the field of mathematics even more.
As a whole the workshop helped me realize that I, indeed, want to be an industrial mathematician.
Everyone on my team brought different skills and ideas to the table. The idea of 'teamwork' often gets lost on graduate students, especially those in mathematics and engineering, where we become so accustom to working on our own. Working with a team for 10-days and coming up with a result that I know I couldn't have accomplished by myself will remain a cherished memory.
