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.
Waterloo was Phipps’ first choice after completing his undergraduate work at Brock University in the Mathematics Integrated with Computer Applications program because it had a cutting-edge program. “The University of Waterloo was a phenomenal fit because they had an entire research program that was developing scientists in the mathematical medicine field,” said Phipps.
