What inspired you to earn a PhD, and why did you choose Rice?
I have found that my personality and temperament forces me to be in a constant state of learning by studying, researching and collaborating with my peers. I wanted to take my love for learning to another level by teaching; by engaging the curious minds of my students to find their own love in the world of mathematics and marketing. This is where earning a Ph.D. at Rice will help me fulfill my dreams and will help me help others fulfill theirs.
