Mathematics + Computer Science = success for UF alumnus
Jon Hauenstein, Ph.D. credits his B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science (’03) from The University of Findlay as the foundation to his successful career path.
Jon is currently an assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame, having held positions at top-notch research institutes and academic universities, he has accomplished paramount mathematical works. He has been supported by many prestigious awards including an esteemed Sloane Research Fellowship and multiple grants totaling over a million dollars. His research has flourished and currently includes a published book, exceeds 50 published articles, two software packages revolutionizing the field of numerical algebraic geometry, and more.
Jon took some time to talk to us about his UF experience and how he feels he continues to use his mathematics and computer science degree to this day…
“My education here showed me the ability to use computer science and software development in applications of mathematics – not just using mathematics on pen and paper, but actually using computers to help solve your answers and develop your applications. Now since then, I have gone on to learn more deep mathematics and advanced programming techniques, but it was really the foundation that I learned at The University of Findlay that has lead me to the career path that I’m on.”
