Amelia McNamara '10 is pursuing a PhD in statistics at UCLA.
She is a mathematics and English major. "My majors prompt a lot of questions because they’re so different, but I think using both sides of my brain keeps me balanced."
She presented at a joint meeting of the Mathematical Association of America and the American Mathematical Society on solar cells. "I presented in a session where professors presented their research! It was extremely nerve-wracking, since my group was the only group of undergraduates presenting in that session. The AMS also asked me to chair the session and I also got to meet one of my favorite mathematicians, Steven Strogatz. It was a great experience!"
