It was a bit of an accident! I had started out studying physiotherapy but really didn’t like it. I didn’t know what I wanted to do but I knew I liked maths and science subjects. I found the Mathematical Sciences degree in the University of Limerick and liked the sound of it, plus liked that it had lots of flexibility in what I could choose to do (the course let us choose to specialise in maths, statistics, computing or financial maths). As soon as I started, I knew it was the right course for me.
