BYU math alumni to discuss careers in new lecture series beginning Oct. 2

Brigham Young University alumni will be returning to campus during fall semester to share their experiences in the workforce in the first-ever Careers in Mathematics Lecture Series.

“We would like to make students more aware of the many possibilities a math degree can have outside of the traditional academic role,” said Claire Ford of the Department of Mathematics.

Each speaker in this lecture series completed a mathematics degree at BYU before pursuing graduate studies and careers. The lecturers include:

• Law: Greg Newton, partner, The Newton Law Firm P.C., Thursday, Oct. 2, at 4 p.m. in 1170 Talmage Building.

• Medical research: Michael Cannon, research epidemiologist, Centers for Disease Control, Thursday, Oct. 9, at 4 p.m. in 1170 Talmage Building.

• Actuarial science: David Andrist, actuary, The Hartford Insurance Company, Thursday, Oct. 23, at 4 p.m. in 1170 Talmage Building.

• National security: Nephi Noble, National Security Agency, Thursday, Dec. 4, at 4 p.m. in 1170 Talmage Building.
