Alumni Profile: Mike Kirby

While journeying through his career, Kirby says that his favorite part was the experience of teaching and mentoring PhD students at Cambridge in England while on sabbatical. There he recognized a difference in PhD students, saying, "what distinguishes a PhD student is that they can learn anything on their own, but it's interesting to see a PhD student go back to undergrad material with new understanding."

When FSU Assistant Professor of Mathematics Kate Petersen was growing up in Philadelphia, she had no idea that a career in mathematics was in her future. Her parents, an engineer and a nurse, couldn't have predicted it either. Even when she went away to Oberlin College in Ohio for her undergraduate education, math wasn't really on her radar.
