wesley hough & six degrees of kevin bacon

Wesley HoughEpisode 75 is an exciting chat with Wesley Hough (like tough!), 5th year graduate student in the PhD of Mathematics program at the University of Kentucky. Wesley also works as a Teaching Assistant, teaching Calculus II for Life Sciences. We chat about the structure of his department considering he teaches science students but is studying for a degree in math. He is working on his dissertation and explains it well enough for Jackie and Lougan to understand. We also talk about job searches – Wesley is planning to apply to close to 85 jobs across the US – and a very interesting number.
