News Becky Mongeau to join policy research firm

Image Picker for Section 0
 

Becky Mongeau is a senior Quantitative Biology major at UD.  Many Quantitative Biology majors move on to advanced study in applied mathematics or biomedical sciences.  Becky has taken a different route:  She recently accepted a position at Mathematica Policy Research.  'A friend of mine said to me, "If you like working with people and numbers, then Mathematica is the place for you!"  That conversation sparked my interest.  They were extremely interested in my extensive computer science experience and my termite research I did this past fall with Prof. Dhurjati.'

As a freshman at Delaware, she had a large wishlist of topics she wanted to study while in college and did not think it was possible to find a major that could encompass everything.  That's when she stumbled upon Quantitative Biology.  As a QBio major she could continue to study mathematics and biology, while learning unique ways to integrate these disciplines. In addition, she was able explore subjects she never expected to with coursework in chemistry, physics, and computer science. As a QBio major, she took classes with education, business, engineering, biology, and chemistry majors and learned to appreciate what every different discipline has to offer.  She found that some of my favorite courses were when she had the opportunity to collaborate with students from all different disciplines such as Math535- Partial Differential Equations and the QBio capstone course Math460- Introduction to Systems Biology. Pursuing a degree in Quantitative Biology enabled her to have endless opportunities. She saw that she could pursue a graduate degree, attend med school, or get a job in applied math, engineering, or physical sciences. It was a perfect fit!
