I studied maths at University College Cork (UCC). It’s true that its first Maths professor was George Boole. After UCC, I earned a PhD in neuroscience from University College London (UCL). Ah… all of Coldplay went to UCL. Mathematical biology was the cool thing back in 2009. But like any good doctor these days, I left actual science for the (relatively) sexy world of data science. My current interests involve mining twitter for the next mathematical fad.
