Andrew P. Sward

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

I'm from Brockton, Mass. I did my undergrad at Northeastern University in Boston with a double major in computer science and mathematics. 

Went on to University of Illinois at Chicago for a master's in pure math and PhD in applied mathematics. My thesis was on numerical analysis schemes for pricing stock options (calls and puts).  What I research today is Bitcoin, and other crypto-currencies.

Specializations: Bitcoin
