More about Luke

Future plans:

I plan on attending University of Kentucky next year to begin pursuing a PhD in Mathematics.

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

Computer science has given me an invaluable skillset that I will use for the rest of my life regardless of what my career path looks like. Mathematics has vastly increased my problem-solving abilities and the way that I approach a variety of problems.

What has been your proudest or most significant accomplishment during your Gonzaga career?

I am most proud of going through the entire research process from beginning to end in my work with Drs. McKenzie and Overbay, which had a huge impact on my ability to attend an REU last summer in San Marcos, TX and then getting into graduate school this year.
