I have a math/physics degree, and my research is on mathematical modelling, particularly with the climate.

Ask me anything.
Dogs or cats?

The correct answer is dogs. Big dogs that still think they're little dogs.

What kind of job do you have/are you hoping to get. I used to think math degrees offered too limited a variety of potential careers, but some of my friends have cool fkin jobs I would have never thought of for math nerds (mild jealousy!)

Aww yea those dogs are cute! Especially Grey Hounds <3

I'm still finishing up my thesis so I don't have a full time job I just help with teaching courses for $$$  ;)

I want to do a funded PHD with a scholarship which will give me a decent amount of money and I really like what I do so I'm excited.

You can get a whole variety of jobs as a math's person :) For example things that are data driven like a data science position or finance related roles. There's also research assistant roles at universities or RandD departments in businesses.

Applied mathematicians will have experience with statistics, modeling and data analysis related things. Pure mathematicians will have knowledge about theoretical things behind compsci things. Both would have picked up coding skills although applied more so especially since they tend to double major physics.

Basically, they have lots of tools to tackle a variety amount of jobs :)

do you leverage semi-analytic models in your climate simulations, or is it just a straightforward navier-stokes solver?
I have visited from prestigious research institutions of the highest caliber, to which only our administrator holds with confidence.

Does the Riemann zeta function have its zeros only at the negative even integers and complex numbers with real part 1/2?

In my experience, when there are zero mosquitos.... it usually means I'm choking on black flies. Not much of an improvement.

I don't know what you mean by semi-analytic models.

I don't use a Global Circulation Model (no naiver-stokes) as I'm not really interested in a climate simulation.

My research is niche I would rather not be specific for privacy concerns.

As long as it's close to 0 in my room.

Ask me anything.

If we start believing we are simulated like in the Matrix movie, can we also believe that the simulating matrix is simulated? And if we does so, is it turtles all the way down? Or it must stop at some point?

Read this:

Can you help tfes.org by mathematically modeling this phenomena, particularly with the intent to discover what the "Bishop's Constant" might be?

Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

I know the OP is never coming back, but just in case... This is, objectively, an absolutely terrible answer from someone claiming to be a math and physics major specialized in mathematical modeling. Pretty disappointing. I mean, I know no one would ever lie on the internet, but sometimes someone comes along that makes me wonder.
