I’m Serena, a (not so) recent graduate with a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I got my undergraduate degree from McGill University with a major in Mathematics and minor in Biology. My master’s focused on geophysical fluid dynamics, specifically modelling ocean flow over the continental shelf and slope in the Northern South China Sea off the coast of Hong Kong. I’m fascinated by how math can be used to solve real world problems. When I encounter a new concept, I always ask myself, “what’s the math?”
