The 160 doctoral students enjoy a collaborative atmosphere and a lively schedule of about twenty-five research seminars and lectures each week. Sixty of our PhD students are women, and we support an active chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). We help students explore multiple career paths through our innovative program of internships in science and industry.
