Hi, although
I’m trained as an optometrist, I have returned to my true love —
Maths.
My enjoyment
of maths has been long standing. In high school I won a silver medal
in the Australian Maths Olympiad (1992) and prizes in the Westpac Maths
Competition and QAMT competitions over several years.
After high school,
I decided to follow a career in Optometry but found it dull in comparison
to mathematical problem solving, so I returned to study and graduated
with a B.Sc(Math) last year, I am doing Honours this year with a thesis
on localizing relativistic electrons.
Outside of studies
I play volleyball, indoor cricket and basketball, and if possible, would
like to spend every waking moment playing computer strategy games like
Starcraft and Diablo II.
I hope to continue
my studies and do a PhD in Mathematical Physics.
