Integrating Data Science into the Applied Mathematics PhD: Generalized Skills for Non-Academic Careers

By Michael Chertkov, PI

The Applied Mathematics Graduate Interdisciplinary Program at the University of Arizona (AM@UA) will serve as a testing ground for this innovative graduate training model, in partnership with NLs and ILs. The overarching goal is to create a pipeline of researchers equipped with the skills needed to address complex issues and foster solutions that benefit society as a whole.
By modernizing the AM curriculum and aligning it with national security needs, we not only advance the field of study but also attract and retain a diverse group of students, including women and underrepresented minorities, to pursue non-academic STEM careers. This project will provide a blueprint for other AM Ph.D. programs nationwide, forging a path towards a diverse, competitive, and future-ready workforce capable of thriving in the era of AI.
