Kimberly Abgrab (BA Math '17)

Affiliation: CVS/pharmacy CVS Health (Senior Analytics Consultant, Retail Strategic Product Development)

At UMass, I was a teaching assistant and tutor for all calculus classes. While at UMass, I was also interning at the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, providing housing loans and grants to low income households. Upon graduation, I was made a full-time loan assistant. After a few months there, wanting a career change, I started working for CVS Health. I began my CVS career in Pharmacy Merchandising, where we managed item file attributes to support inventory flow and pricing activity. Recently, I was promoted to Senior Analytics Consultant, Retail Strategic Product Development. As part of the Pharmacy Product Development team, we focus on patient adherence analytics and patient care programs.


Sidafa Conde (BS '12, PhD '17)

Affiliation: Postdoctoral Appointee, Center for Computing Research, Sandia National Laboratories

Sidafa Conde received his B.S. in Accounting and Math from Umass Dartmouth in 2012. Sidafa successfully defended his doctoral thesis in 2017 in Engineering and Applied Science at Umass Dartmouth. Sidafa is currently continuing his career in the Computational Mathematics Department at Sandia National Lab. He is member of the research group focusing on parallel computing, implicit methods, MHD, plasma, and multi physics. His research interest includes: high performance computing, and parallel algorithm development, numerical methods for multiple-time-scale nonlinear coupled PDEs, temporal and spatial discretizations of PDEs, applications to computational fluid dynamics, and magnetohydrodynamic systems modeling. 

Matthew Huberman (BS Math '11)

Affiliation: High School Mathematics Teacher (Easton Public Schools), Content Lecturer (Mass Insight Education), AP Exam Reader (College Board & ETS)

Matt completed his undergraduate years with a BS in Mathematics in 2011. He received a fellowship grant as a Noyce Scholar (NSF) which helped him to complete his MA in Teaching in 2013. Matt currently teaches at Oliver Ames High School in Easton, MA where he teaches algebra, geometry, and AP Statistics. Throughout the year and across the Commonwealth, Matt lectures at various high schools on AP Statistics via the Mass Insight Education program. This year, he will be attending the AP Exam Reading for Statistics as a reader in Kansas City, MO.

Hannah Smith (BA Math & Psychology '18)

Affiliation: Learning Sciences & Technologies Graduate Student, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

At UMass I was a member of the softball team for four years and captain for two as well as a teaching assistant, tutor in the Math and Business Center, and a research assistant in the psychology department. I am now in my first year as a graduate student at WPI. I am in the learning sciences program which combines psychology, math, computer science and education. I am currently involved in multiple research projects in which I use many of the skills I learned at UMass. My main research areas are in gestures and linear board games. I am attending and presenting my first research conference in Canada in June.
