PhD alumna at the NSA

Dr. Aziza Jefferson, who received her PhD under Prof. Vatter in 2015, has been featured in an article in the National Security Agencies news. While a UF grad student she was an intern in the NSA’s Summer Program for Operations Research Technology (SPORT). “Once in the internship I decided to return full time because I found that I could truly help other people by solving interesting problems. I am not only able to use my mathematical skills, but engage my interests in other fields as well.”
