Mathematics has always been the major force driving my life and my decisions. My passion for problem solving led me to first, complete a maths degree with a specialisation in teaching at the University of Minho in Portugal. I soon realised though, that I wanted to learn more mathematics. This desire brought me to the University of Melbourne, where I enrolled in a MSc with a thesis component in mathematical logic. After a year of studying logic, I felt that my interest for the area was dwindling so I changed again. While browsing the handbook of the university, I discovered a fascinating area that combines biology, computer science, statistics and mathematics: bioinformatics. I enrolled in a bioinformatics course and in 2011, I completed a MSc in Maths and Statistics with a thesis component applied to bioinformatics. My interest in the field and in the academic career led me to enrol in a PhD in Statistics and here I am, months away from the end. In 2015, I decided it was time for another change. I’m now also an Associate Data Scientist at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
My message: Maths can lead you anywhere - follow your passion and your curiosity. Discover what is out there, as only good things come from change.
