Lucas Sabalka I began my mathematical career as a research mathematician, but now I work in industry even though my degree is not in an applied area. With so few academic jobs available recently, transitioning to industry is becoming more common for mathematics PhDs. So to help any mathematicians thinking about that transition, let me tell you how I got where I am.

Hangjie Ji, Duke University I have found that it is very easy for graduate students to get immersed in their own filtered and narrowed research area without thinking about how to use their expertise in other applications. During my Ph.D. study in mathematics I was an active participant in several industrial workshops where graduate students have the opportunity to work in teams on real problems. In this post I will share my experiences at these workshops.
