Graduate Alumni
We are proud of our graduates. They have won prizes for their theses, and have found mathematical jobs in universities and colleges and in industry. This list shows where most of our activity has been in the past; recent hirings may change some of those patterns.
In most of the cases where the thesis advisor is not a current member of the Mathematics Department, the supervisor was a member of another department at UBC.
