Colin Phipps (PhD ’14) always loved math and computer science, but he always wanted to apply those skills to a high impact field. He focused his graduate research on mathematical oncology under the supervision of Mohammad Kohandel in the Department of Applied Mathematics.
Four graduate students were awarded a departmental research presentation award by the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, but that's not all they have in common. They all came to Waterloo because they knew of the excellence of the Statistics programs, research, and professors. Their backgrounds vary, as do their research areas, but they have all had a great experience.
